Snippet 1: When providing an update for The Boy on events in The Park this week, i emphasized how tremendously functional DQ has been regarding Mom’s care.
The Boy: Nice to hear she’s finally pulling her own weight. Well, um… I’m not sure anyone could be that helpful.
Snippet 2: There was much more adventure for out little family this week than just the medical drama in The Park. While settling in to a much anticipated Happy Hour “Strategery” Session with colleagues from work on Friday afternoon, i received a call from The Girl. She’d been in a car accident, but was uninjured. Another driver turned in front of her, and an unavoidable T-Bone was served to the errant motorist.
The Girl handled the situation perfectly – address safety, assess injuries, contact police & insurance company, in that order. Relieved, i asked if she needed me to assist.
The Girl: No, I’m fine. The cop offered to drive me home. Sweet. I’ve never been in the back of a police car*!
* Unlike The Boy, who said he’d been on the plastic police car bench seat twice. His first offense i knew about – a misunderstanding about a borrowed car. The second? “I wasn’t arrested. I was detained. For skateboarding. Or maybe it was trespassing or something…”
