Tater to the Rescue

Tot only goes to school on Mondays and Wednesdays. Tater goes Monday thru Friday. On Tuesday morning, we went to the calendar and talked about the day. Tater and I told Tot how only Tater had school. It became time to go to school and off to load up the van. Hmmm... Tot was missing. After much screaming, kicking and running away... I got Tot in the van.

On the way to school, Tot was crying. Tater, being a good big brother, told Tot to stop crying... Tot was going to get to stay with Mom and go to the Big Park. A few cuss words went through my mind but no good way to shut Tater up. After he repeated it twice, Tot stopped crying. In fact, the rest of the way to school all I heard about was the Big Park. There was not enough time for me to go to the Big Park but I knew I was going to have to do something. I ended up going to the 'small park' for a short period of time.

I think Tater was sweet thinking about his brother, but I could have screamed when he made a commitment that I couldn't keep. I talked to him before we left on Thursday and made sure he understood that I would N.O.T be taking Tot to a park.
