Once her lengthy rendition of Rapunzel was complete, I sat with her in the darkened room. Soon, her breathing changed and I could tell she was finally sleeping.
But I stood outside her door for a little while to make sure she wasn’t faking me out like she’d done in the past.
With the kids off to school and the early morning activities behind me, I took a cab to work. So far, we only had one car and I insisted Ellie use it. In all honesty, I wasn’t a very good driver because living in the city, I’d never had to do it. Ellie was more adventurous that way. Besides, there were too many times I’d found myself the wrong way down a one-way street. That’s not cool.
As always, thank you for reading, liking, lurking, and commenting,
