Be still my beating heart.

While yesterday was my youngest son's birthday it was also as you know, April Fool's Day. When I got home from school Cameron had been home and gone back to school for tennis. I walked upstairs into the kitchen and had the crap scared out of me. One of Cam's friends works at a video store and gave him a cardboard cut out of Will Smith from the movie I Am Legend. He then proceeded to sit him in one of the kitchen chairs at the table. In that split second before my eyes realized that it was a one dimensional image, that fight or flight instinct took over. (I was going for the flight.) Then my brain realized that there was not a real man with a gun at my table. Honestly it took about 30 minutes for my heart to calm down and that adrenaline rush to fade. The blue post it note says, "April Fools, Love you" I love you too Cameron even though you just took 5 years off my life.
