So this was the scene at our house this morning around 7 o’clock:


That’s the little man. Playing SORRY with his grandmother.

And he won, by the way.

We had a very cheerful goodbye; he made a big show of acting like he was going to block the door, and then he threw his arms around my neck and said, “BYE, MAMA! LOVE YOU!”

And then he made some loud WHOOSH-ing noises and ran back to the kitchen.

There were no tears at all. That’s what you call the power of prayer, oh internets.

So I’m about to board the plane for Chicago. And apparently – or so I hear – I’m heading all the way to Africa.

Go figure.
