quiet evening

By Tara Zandra | April 15, 2013

Upon reflection of today’s event, I had no desire to leave my family and try and have a good time at dinner with a friend pretending everything was fine. Similarly, I chose to keep Tabitha** home from Girls Scouts. So this evening has been spent hanging out together. Tabitha and I watched Doctor Who while Chris and Daisy played a game. I’ve been crocheting, Chris and Tabi have been on their computers and Daisy has been playing Mario Kart- but she’s doing it by dressing up as Princess Daisy and created her own go kart out of cardboard and the power ups out of paper. No electronics were harmed in the making of this game.

And in the background we have the Dodgers game. A very homey evening and that’s really all I wanted.

***Thanks to Tabitha being on twitter and facebook, I can no longer shield her from tragedies in the world. I know some people don’t believe in shielding anyway, but I like to keep children innocent for as long as possible.

    I’ve never really shielded Bren from overly much but thing is, that stuff doesn’t affect her, at all. Her nonchalance kind of freaks me out but I think adults especially parents handle it the worst anyway. Kids seem to have the idea that they will live forever no matter what, death isn’t so real to them unless they have maybe experienced it firsthand. Not a pet, but with a human person they had been close to. B’s great-grandma passed a couple years ago but they weren’t very close emotionally.
