We talk about the best and worst things about our day over dinner each night. It provides giggles as well as a way to talk about difficult encounters. So, tonight I asked Gloria to think about the best and worst things about the past week.
Her "hi" was predictable: the snow we had on Tuesday. Her "lo" might seem trivial to most of us, but to a kindergartener it was hurtful: "_______ said my soup smelled bad at lunch today." Granted, it's not your usual six-year old fare...broccoli, potato, and cheese soup. But she loves it and enjoys having a warm lunch on a chilly day.
For me, I had to think a little harder. My "hi" was the same as Gloria's: the snow on Tuesday. I love having an unexpected day off. Not only that, but I didn't have a long list of things I had to accomplish. Therefore, we could play outside and throw snow, chase each other, and squeal with delight. My "lo"...worrying about my mom as she flew to and from Orlando. Even without the plane landing in the Hudson River last week, I hate flying and hate when someone I know or love is flying. It makes me physically ill to think about until I know they are at their destination safely.
