Today we’re off to Frankfurt with TwinkleToes. She’s 8. We met her when she was 5 and it’s amazing to see this little girl grow into this incredible person. We love spending time with her. Her mom just had a baby, like two weeks ago, so this is a perfect time to give her some TLC.
Yesterday, Sparky and I spent hours trying to figure out kid things to do. We had museums and movies and zoos and amusement parks all picked out. We were going to let her choose. You know what she wants to do? She said, and this is almost a quote, she doesn’t want to do anything that big, just spend time with us so if we could just go shopping for CDs and get an ice cream cone, she’d be happy. And this wasn’t in that passive-aggressive martyr way.
I swear, if my GBF hadn’t suggested that I not joke about kidnapping kids, I would warn her mom that TT would soon have a new last name. She is the one of the reasons Sparky and I are planning to have kids – not now, but in the future. She is the antithesis of a shitty kid.
Well, TT, the pleasure is all ours so you’re on. We’re off to Frankfurt for a bit of shopping and a movie later in the day. Ice cream cones included.
