Or no place like Mom's Home anyway.
I survived the dentist! Whew! Poor man. I'm really good in that chair as long as you don't give me shots that make my heart race. I sit still and don't make a sound. He's such a good dentist, which is why I drive all the way to San Diego just to see Dr. Fenn. Worth the drive. Plus, I get to see my mom.
AND this little guy...
Sigh. He's going to be writer, I think. Such a creative mind. We were taking him to his pre-school last night (his mom is the Assistant Director) when he said, "That's not my school."
"No, it's a haunted house!"
"A haunted house?"
"Mmhmm. There's a MUMMY in there!"
"Oh no! I'm scared of mummies."
"You can stay in the car."
Well, I was brave enough to get out of the car but there was a lot of running around and hiding behind cars and bushes to avoid that Mummy. Then a GHOST appeared as we were opening the door. He pulled me out of the way just in time.
"Aunt Jen! The ghost almost got you!"
He watches waaaaay too much Scooby Doo, I think. But he has so much fun pretending. WE have so much fun pretending.
We pretend the couch is a train. We go to visit people we know and famous people we wish we knew. Sometimes I ride the train and he is the conductor.
We pretend the jungle gym is a pirate ship and we're pirates. The sand is water and there is an octopus waiting to eat us at the bottom. One of us gets snatched and the other has to fight valiantly to save the victim.
We pretend so many fun things. He's so good at it. So natural.
Trips to visit Mom are so much fun - even when there is a dental visit in charge and your hair ends up purple.
What about you - who do you love to visit?
Tomorrow, I'll be posting a flashback from my past - a poem I wrote when I was 16! I had a very productive time at Mom's digging out my high school poems and short stories. So much fun to relive those times!
