Wed, Yell-yo, Gggren and Bue!

SK is out tonight, studying for his comprehensives (Suckah!), leaving Ubs and I to trip the light fantastic. First, a breakfast bar and goldfish for dinner followed by a quick call to Nana, a game of tackle football, a warm bath and AFTER THE BATH, mind you, finger painting! To bed 20 minutes late with paint infused pjs and a sigh, the child sleeps.

Me? I remember 35 minutes ago, an eternity from a moment I will hold as if it was today, every day for the rest of my life. Liquid color arranged in a cirlce of thimble-sized containers, tiny finger pointing, pausing, switching motion to another, "Yell-yo", back to the first "Bue!", darting at a diagonal towards "Ggren!" and the newest and most challenging "Wed!" I blink away a tear, thankful to have had this evening with Ubs. Lucky Libby.

Those times are the best! Sarah and I spent 2 hours playing video games together on her Vsmile system. Loads of fun...most of it was in watching her.
