Okay, so I’ve said it before, and I hope you don’t hold it against me, but I’m not Christian. Despite this, Mayan and I usually have a little special dinner for Easter, just the two of us. This year Mayan’s little sister Sissy decided that she wanted to spend the day with us.
Things have been rough with the girl’s father recently. I’ve mentioned Mayan’s frustrations in the past, but his selfish behavior has exploded all over everyone he knows in recent weeks. I can’t go into details, but it isn’t good. Sissy needed a little vacation from all of that and we were more than happy to have her.
We met Mayan’s (ex)step-mom at the (approximate) half-way point between our homes and picked up Sissy Saturday afternoon. Their little brother, Rocket, was there too…12 years old and officially taller than Mayan. She is 5’7″, same as me. It is a little disconcerting. Where is the crazy little boy we knew so well??
Mayan took Sissy to the movies with a sorority sister and then they spent the night at the sorority house. I am sure that Sissy loved it! Then they came home and I made an Easter breakfast for them. It was a good day.
I bought Sissy a pre-made cinnamon roll, because Mayan and I are still avoiding wheat. We all indulged in sausages, bacon and eggs though! Yum.
I had offered our home as a refuge for the kids and I am very happy that Sissy felt comfortable taking a break with us. Rocket said that he wanted to come too, but he had sports obligations…hopefully soon! We miss him too!
