Today, right after Derek’s mom came over to help with the boy, I heard the back door open. I looked through the kitchen, expecting to see Derek’s dad, only to see Derek Lidbom himself standing there. He had changed his flight and come home a day earlier (probably because of my alluding to possibly putting the monster on ebay).
Anyhow, it was a big relief. The boy was glad to see him too. I was a little worried that there would be a little bit of relationship rebuilding necessary, but I was wrong.
SarahPowers and Jack came over tonight since they were in town for the Davis Cup. They came bearing gifts for the little man. He got a frog sippy cup, bowl, spoon and bib. And two new pacifiers that are total BLING. I think one of them says “Bling” on it. They have all kinds of jewels and sparkle. They were a little big for Isaac right now, but stay posted for when his little mouth grows and he doesn’t gag on them. He’ll be soooo cool.
