Yesterday afternoon, Braeden was at work and Emma was volunteering as a movie extra (because who is that girl, anyway? And what has she done with Emma?). I asked Mark if we should go to IKEA. He said, "Can we get chocolate cake?"
I said, "Of course."
So we went. We stopped off first for the cake and Mark decided that he was hungry enough for chicken strips and fries. I got the chocolate cake and shared some with him. Mark and I have shared many a piece of chocolate cake at IKEA.
We started in on the maze that is IKEA and Mark asked, "Can we not take any shortcuts? I want to look at everything."
Do you have any idea how long it has taken me to cultivate that kind of companionship for IKEA shopping? That was a hard fought battle.
I am going to miss him when he is at school.
