Chance had guitar lessons this morning, which means getting him into town by 7:30.
Colton's classroom doesn't open until 8:05, so that leaves us a bit of time in between.
This morning, I had forgotten about the lessons until 7:00, which left us 10 minutes to get ready and be on the road.
The boys were still in their jammies.
Needless to say, the morning was a little rushed.
So, after we dropped Chance off 5 minutes late, I pulled back into the road.
Colton - Where are we going, mama?
Me - I thought we'd get some coffee.
Colton - Oh, I can't have coffee! (followed by a little 'harumph')
Me - Well, I thought maybe you could have cocoa or something.
Colton - That's what I meant, and I can't have that either! It's a school morning!
Me - We have plenty of time, though, buddy. You can drink it before we have to come back.
Colton - Mama, you know that much sugar in the morning with throw me straight into the yellow. I'll have my marker changed in a heartbeat.
**Update - you know by the time we got to Starbucks, he thought he could handle the cocoa, right? And, since he was being so darned responsible, I had to reward him :)
But, he stayed on green. The yellow monster did not visit us yesterday. I think he was saving himself for the Valentine's party today - I have a feeling Mr. Yellow will be out in FULL force!
