Waiting

It's an early Saturday evening and while I wait for "he who gets dinner" to wake up from their nap, perhaps it's a good time to catch up. Last night we had our nephew Mikey here for a sleep-over. All was going well until he went to bed and then the trouble started. All he wanted was to go home. I remember seeing him face down on the floor, crying about wanting to go home. John wasn't going to have any of it as he was warned by his brother that there might be a meltdown. Finally, I felt so bad for him that I managed to get him to get into my bed and there we slept for the rest of the night. He's barely six years old and still wears "under-roos" at night because of some accidents. Last night was no surprise. I woke up this morning feeling the distinct sensation of dampness. One thing I have learned was not to give the child any grief for his accident and so I didn't. It was time for some fresh sheets on the bed anyway, I guess.
Later on, we went to a graduation party at some friends of John's from school back in Ft. Lauderdale. I spent most of the afternoon at Brew, which was nice because it had been a while since I had been there.
Today, I was at Starbucks, here in Boca. As far as Starbucks' go, it's not so bad. It's a relatively short walk from home and there's usually always something to see here.
