With my own family

Aunty Amanda and Nam came over to watch Reid last night while Ken and I went out for dinner. They’d planned to take Reid out to McDonald’s and then the Museum of Science and Technology but we couldn’t get Reid’s car seat into Nam’s car. I tried offering pizza as an alternate and Reid went running for her highchair where she informed me that she wanted to eat “with my own family.” Wow, can she tug on one’s heartstrings. We were leaving her with *Aunty* Amanda though, and went out as planned. We came home to a happy girl who’d had a hamburger and fries compliments of Nam’s delivery service, gone to the park, read some books and watched some Toopy and Binoo. Oh, and the lion that Nam had drawn on her little magnetic sketch screen – I think I may never again insult that toy with my scribbles!
