Yesterday I took the day off. Completely off. No work, no housework, nothing but spending the day with Abby.
First we dropped Boo off at her school. Then....
We went to Dunkin Donuts and discovered the joy of the new Oreo donut. We went shopping. When offered the choice between doing our nails or going to a playground she chose the playground. We went to lunch, her choice where she could make our own pizza.
I was told I was the best mom ever (I am writing it down to remember when she is 16). I was told that we 'have the most fun together' (I am saving this for the college years).
Then I was told something was missing. I'm biting my tongue to not tell her to be selfish when she says:
The only thing missing was Boo.
