Tuesday is physical therapy day--W has it at home then I pick Iz up from preschool and we have a 45 minute gap until her PT at the rehab center. Not enough time to go home, really, so we usually run an errand (today's was getting gas). It is unusual for me to run inside and get stuff but it was so worth it Tuesday!
I was super tired and stopped for a 99cent coffee (and this gas
station has pretty good brewed coffee) and picked up a box of fresh
popcorn for Iz, a cheesestick for W, and a snapple for Iz because my mom used to get them for me when I was little and Iz
had never had one. So we get our stuff and start our drive over to the
rehab center--Iz says "its like I'm at the movies with my popcorn and
my drink!" I tell her that the windshield must be the movie screen.
She and I start making up movies based on what we see out the
windshield. There's an armored truck so I say maybe its an action film
about a bank heist and she throws in that the truck will get into a big
accident because action movies like to blow stuff up We spot a couple walking together and decide they are starring in a romance. A school bus goes by and Iz
declares its a kid movie about preschool adventures. And on and on.
We spent the whole ride making up movie plots and it was so much fun to
see how her little mind works and how quickly she can come up with
stories for a few seconds seen out the window!
