Picked Rojo and his friend, Razzle Dazzle (RD), up from school on Friday. Play date. These two have been friends since kindergarten, and thank God for RD, because every couple of months Rojo reports, "RD wants to come over - been awhile since he's been here." And so RD's mom and I get our heads together and make it happen.
And it happens.
So Friday Woohoo was otherwise engaged and I took the two boys out for ice cream, part of Rojo's master plan for the play date. Rojo ordered Bubblegum and RD, a man after my own heart, ordered Espresso Chip. The three of us sat round the table, they eating their ice cream with spoons, Rojo tapping, humming and kicking happily while RD and I visited.
"Rojo won a water bottle today!" RD tells me excitedly.
"Yea, it was Walk & Bike to School day, and everyone that walked got to enter a raffle for a NIKE water bottle. Rojo turned to everyone at the table and said, 'I know I'm going to win that water bottle,' and guess what? They called his name! He knew it!"
Rojo continued to eat, kick, hum and tap, unimpressed with his own powers.
And that's just one of the things that makes him so impressive.
