Apparently, Sophie is under the impression that I don’t spend enough time with her. In order to disabuse her of that notion, I am going to have some special Sophie/Mommy time with her tomorrow morning.
Instead of schlepping Chloe to piano and creative writing class, I am going to devote the morning hours to my little baby. Beautiful weather is in the cards, and I hope to spend at least part of the time outside with Sophie, galavanting around the neighborhood.
It’s nice to inhale some warm air. It’s not going to last, of course – this is one of those March teases. But I’m going to enjoy it while I can, which apparently means until Sunday evening. But I’ll take it where I can get it. By 5:45 pm today work was like an abandoned city. The parking lot was just about empty at that hour – a little early, even for a Friday. Everyone was eager to get the hell out of Dodge.
For the first time in several months, I arrived home and sat on the front stoop with Sophie reading a couple of new books she and her Papa bought at the bookstore. Boy, was that nice. So nice that I almost forgot my stresses and troubles. Not quite. But almost. That’s progress for me.
Sunshine, see you again tomorrow.
