Are We There Yet?

One time when Tio was seven, I arranged to take him for a Saturday overnight visit. I said to his dad I’d be early afternoon. That would give him enough time to watch his cartoons, have dad get up and get some of the day burned through so he’d be ready for the visit. When I got there it turned out he’d been waiting at the door with his coat on and back pack on since 8 am. When you’re out of the loop, you forget how in the moment kids live.
