Mama didn’t win Teacher of the Year at her school, so we began the day with that disappointing news. She’s been in the final three on three occasions now, so maybe if she ever makes the final three again, she’ll win. Mama texted me the news while I was walking with Grandpa and Max at the mall, so I shared the news with Grandpa.

They went to Bojangles after our walk, and I went to get my allergy shots. When I returned to pick up Max at Mimi and Grandpa’s, both Mimi and Max were bundled up in jackets as Max played outside in the dirt and Mimi watched him. An ant or sand flea bit our little buddy on his right calf and he was distressed about it.

When we came home he said he wanted to play cars with the boys he played with last night. I thought that was sweet. He was irritable when we got home, and it was a challenge to placate him through lunch. I got him upstairs a little early, and we watched Day of the Diesels before I put him down for his nap.

Granny came over while the little fellow was asleep, and she was here when he awoke. He was excited to see Granny and put on a big show. Granny, Max, Mama, and I had dinner together and played with the little fellow for a short while before Mama and I took Max to Mama’s school for Patriot’s Night. Tonight’s event was held in remembrance of the terrible tragedies of 9/11.

Max was a wild man at Patriot’s Night. He sprinted around the playground, ran up and down hills, played on slides, and had a blast doing it all. We left when it got completely dark, but Baybay wanted to stay and keep on playing. He saw the big kids doing adventurous things like climbing on top of the slide tunnels, and he tried to imitate them. I wouldn’t let him because I was afraid someone might accidentally knock him off.

Mama and Max just got their baths and are watching one of the Toy Story movies upstairs. We’re going to see Elmo and the rest of the Sesame Street gang at Philips Arena in the morning, so I hope we get a good night’s rest. I’m glad to have my favorite little fellow home tonight.
