I took her to her favorite hydrant this morning. Yes, she has a favorite hydrant. Two favorites, actually.
“Did you miss me, Roozle?”
“Oh yes. I missed you so much because you were gone for a very long time.”
“I missed you, too, Roozle. So much.”
She woke up at 4:45 this morning. For the day. Because she was excited to see me. She wanted to tell me all about everything I missed. The trip to Ikea. The visit from her grandmother. The new trains Mama bought. I drank all the coffee and read her some new books I brought home for her.
Alexandra told me you always have to bring something home for the kids.
It’s so good to be home.
