“Where Emmo? Where Emmo at?”
Is all Lucas would say yesterday as we drove 4 hours up to Elmo, California to see my cousin ask his girlfriend to marry him as she left work to come home. It was nothing too dramatic or romantic, but just a simple diamond engagement ring from the Leo Schachter collection, and a few nervous smiles, which made for a yes from the new bride, and tears from the new groom.
I told Lucas we were going to Elmo the day before yesterday, and wow did I regret that. He was so excited to go see Elmo.. ya-know.. the big red furry guy from Sesame Street. Unfortunately we were going to Elmo, the place. Disappointment will now kick in.
It was alright though. Lucas got to meet my cousin. I don’t know the relationship they have. Would he be considered Luka’s cousin as well? Who knows, but they met and they hit it off quite well.
Here’s Lucas on a candy-high showing off his ‘priceless’ assortment of Elmo gear.
He even made me use his Elmo diapers for each time I changed him. The kid is crazy for Elmo.
Also, Luka’s behavior is just horrible lately. I’m currently taking him to a therapist because he isn’t having temper tantrums and this isn’t the usual ‘terrible twos’ its much worse. I hope he’s just acting out because he is missing his mom. If so, I also hope that I can help him out without including his mom in this situation.
