lying in wait
It was with great anticipation that I snuck into his bedroom and nestled a chocolate chick next to his alarm clock. I expected him to find it when he tucked in for the night, but I heard no scream of terror. And so I put it of my head for the evening. But this morning…
here he came, all but shouting. Look what was in my room! And then he took it in his hand and crushed it. Little does he know… I have three more.
I suppose it is kind of sick that I enjoy scaring my kids. But my Mom took great pleasure in it… so I figure, I come by it rightly. At least I am not storing scary Halloween masks in the attic for just such a purpose! And these chicks are not scary… not one little bit. But last year, Camden just decided their eyes were a little too wide-eyed and maybe a little freaky. And I can tell you… that it is part of what makes me fall in love with him day after day. That quirky, funny, joyful mind of his… oh, how he makes me laugh!
I may not hide another chick right away… but I will continue on and plan my attacks accordingly. Just because… it is our little thing. And one more way to say I love you… in the the language of a thirteen year old's heart!
Unwrapping my love today… and, a quirky side of my own personality!
