we were playing in the driveway, just me and k. i like this time i have with her, it reminds me of when it was just - me and m.
(poor middle kid g, hardly any alone time, another post indeed)
we did bubbles and chalk, i sat in my wvu stadium seat and pretended i had season tickets for the best team in town.
after a while i thought i could sneak in and put clothes in the dryer. i left the garage doors open so i could hear her and almost see her. i opened the washer, "k you okay out there?"
"yeah!" she answered.
"great! i'll be right there." i closed the dryer, set the timer.
"still okay?" i asked again.
the answer came back matter-of-factly
and with just a hint of annoyance,
"don't worry, no one taked me yet."
well hell, at least someone in this house is listening!
