A New Chapter - Or At Least a New Page
Super Son has left the building...at least, temporarily. He's gone off for a week to serve as a Page in the Washington State Senate. It's going to be a great experience.
Daring Daughter, Professor X and I are missing him. This is the first time he's been away for that long. The four of us do so much together - go to movies, plays, concerts, play board games, cook, laugh - that it feels very weird not to have him here. It's like the comfy chair of our family has lost one leg. Pretty soon we'll figure out how to be a three-legged stool, and we'll have a good time for the next few days. But this gives me a hint of what things will be like in three years when he goes away to college. And I don't like it, not one little bit.
