I am so lucky.
I’m going to a friend’s house with a few people I’ve known since high school. We will drink. We will eat delicious food. We will play games. We will be merry. I will be a 20-something again.
Best of all? Alex will be with my Mother overnight. I can sleep in a bit in the morning, head to my morning dance class, and then come home to Alex.
Mama needs a break. And oh-how-happy she will be to see her charming little man in the morning.
