Yeah, worlds were colliding today, because Handsome Lad came to work with me today. I never really understand why he occasionally asks to come in. It feels hard to keep him entertained when I am trying to work. Well, it is a library, which is certainly more condusive to kid friendliness than most offices would be. He can read, play on the computers, get into the art supplies, even watch a video. Still, I just get him settled at something and get back to work and there he is standing at my side again. Maybe he just wants to spend time with me...there's a thought! It used to be that the most the two of us could manage at the library together was a couple of hours. Today he was here from 9 until 4, when my mom came and rescued him. Not bad.
Tomorrow is Handsome Lad's 10th birthday. My baby. We are going out to brunch courtesy of my dad and stepmom in the morning. Then his grandma is taking him to the hospital to see his dad. He mentioned visiting the park in the afternoon. I always let them pick dinner on their birthdays and Handsome Lad has chosen Golden Dragon Chinese. He wants a large number of people to be there, so I guess it will be a bit costly, but it seems worth it to me. I hope he has a wonderful day. I think he has it coming to him.
