the car door slammed shut and i looked back at mason, all alone in the very back seat. "well it's just you and me again today buddy, what should we do?"
"should we have a party? just the two of us?"
"okay, i'll make eggs with peppers and mushrooms!"
mason scowls and curls his upper lip "no! ew!"
after a few minutes....
mason says, "mom, remember those days when you would let me play video games without practicing my letters? i want one of those days."
once again i'm reminded of how short my time is with having him to myself during the day.
i think i just may miss it.
