"Mama, I Go Work Now"
Every night this week, Salvatore has announced to me that he is going to go to work. I laugh and ask him where he works and he always says "I work at Chili's" first. Then I say O.K. and he runs to the door and hides behind the blind. He hides for at least 2 or 3 minutes, and Benny always chases him and sniffs him out. Then, he pushes back the blind and reemerges and says, "Mama, I back from Chili's!" He will do this 3 or 4 times before changing jobs. Next, he goes to work at "la escuela (the school)" and he repeats his little ritual. His final comment to me is always, "I come back, Mama, I back!" I plan to add to his little mix this weekend by suggesting that he take certain, necessary things with him to "work." Thank goodness he always comes back!!
