Claire has been pretty into making a “heart” shape with her hands like this lately.
She’ll spring it on you. Suddenly there’s just this heart-shaped hand in front of you, and it’s like “whoa!” and she wants you to complete the heart. 😆 Apparently I’m the worst at it. Claire’s like “That’s so ugly, Dad!” 😂
I love school drop-off mornings — when we get to hang out at Mozart’s before school.
Claire and I have about an hour get a drink (an iced mocha and a cold brew, please) after dropping off Molly. We share memes or talk about the universe. The multiverse has been a major topic lately. 🤷🏻♂️
Then we usually settle into Claire playing Genshin on her iPhone and me working on my laptop before heading out and starting the day for real.
We made it to Houston this year to visit my parents at their retirement home. The whole trip was a bit of a scramble to get out the door, get to Houston just in time for a Harry Potter spinoff play, and finish everyone’s presents in the hotel.
But getting everyone together for a couple of great outdoor picnics (due to Covid) made it all worthwhile.
