I’ve often thought how nice a little bit of mediocrity in my life would be.
I dropped the boys off at our local gymnastics centre from 5:30pm until 10pm. Yes – that’s FOUR AND A HALF hours. Kid-free on a Friday night.
That’s an uninterrupted dinner conversation and catching up on a weeks worth of pvr’d shows!
Just Cuy and me.
I loved every single second of our 2-hour excursion. He was fun and funny and charming and brought a smile to many faces. He was thoughtful enough to ask if we could buy a book for Cam and Eva. He – himself – chose 2 really pretty purple bracelets from Ardene for his friend’s birthday gift and then 2 ZhuZhu Pets for her. I was so proud of him. I thoroughly enjoyed being with him. And it felt so normal.
