Grant hates when Nate leaves for work in the morning. There's a lot of, "You never go! I want you to stay here with me!" along with clinging to his leg or trying to drag him by the arm back into the house. This morning he put a new twist on it:
Grant: Where are you going?
Nate: I have to go to work.
Grant: I take work and put it in a black hole...and put it in SPACE! (punctuated by huge arm movements and drama)
Later he said, "I put my class in the black hole, also." We're working on being content even if we don't like the circumstances. It's a tough lesson for me, let alone a 4-year-old. Hopefully we'll learn it together.
