What a good start to a Friday. Last night Miles played in his first fall concert. He joined the jazz band this year and is playing the saxophone. I should clarify, Miles picked up the sax for the first time in June and now he just finished his first concert and his first solo. Talk about a happy momma!! My mom even flew in town to watch. I think we were both beaming.
Now I will spend the rest of the weekend with my mom and Miles eating until she leaves. I’ve already had a pretty good treat week. One employee went to NYC and brought back a cookie from Levain Bakery. I’ve been dying to try one and now I have. It was scrumptious. Another coworker went to NYC and brought me a black and white cookie from a bodega. My favorite kind! For me, black and white cookies don’t have to be fancy. Look to the cookie 🙂
Tonight it’s dinner at Matchbox in Barrack’s Row where we will eat yummy brick over pizza, Saturday breakfast bagels from Bullfrog, then Miles heads out for a birthday sleepover and it’s girls night out for mom and I.
I think I may take her to Jos A Magnus for a pre-dinner cocktail.
This will be a nice distraction before I come back to reality after her departure and contemplate whether or not to become a foster parent. It’s something I never thought I would do especially as a single mom. I can barely afford my own kid, but I can’t stand to see another suffer because he’s caught up in an unfortunate family situation. And he’s my son’s best friend, so I know what great kid he is!
