Jack is spending Father’s Day with Dennis…well the whole weekend that is…so I’ve been on my own. I drove to Mass to visit my Dad and family and it seems like all we’ve done is eat. Ugh!!!
It’s been so quiet without Jack and I actually freaked myself out on Saturday morning when I thought he was “missing”. The cats woke me up at 5am for food Grrrrr!! After I fed them I thought I heard jack walking upstairs. I was like Oh no, why is he up so early???
I started up the stairs and noticed that his door was open so I was confused because his light wasn’t on and his noise machine (air purifier) was off. When I got all the way up and saw that his room was empty and he wasn’t in the bathroom…I freaked out for about 5 seconds, as only a mom can do. Holy crap. My mind really played a trick on me, and I’m still slightly jittery when I’m home alone. My divorce was final on Tuesday so it really is a new feeling. Strange eh!
With that said I’ll leave you with a snippet of our phone call this morning. Dennis was taking Jack to a friend’s birthday party. So precious.
Jack: Hi Mom.
me: Hi sweetie! Whatcha doing?
Jack: we went to (mumble mumble)
me: Oh I didn’t quite hear that…
Jack: Mumble Mumble!!
me: uhhh…still no…
Jack: What’s the address to the party?
me: Ohhh! I couldn’t hear you. Well I’m on a hike with your uncles right now so I don’t have the invitation. I emailed it to Daddy…
Jack: We’re driving! Helloooo!
me: Hey watch that tone! Put Daddy on…
Jack: He’s driving I said! That’s illegal!
me: Well you’ll just have to…
They hung up. Awesome right???
