LACIE DAY #3
11 July 2019
We have never had this much "alone time
(without Brianna)" with Lacie -- ever. Alice Nan has had a lot of time with
her for the past 7 years, but even she admits she has never had this much
alone time with Lacie and without Brianna. But the regular babysitter
is on vacation, and since Tom and Laurel work, they are really lucky that
Alice Nan is so generous with her time and can help them out so much
It was going to be our chance to find out what Bri has been doing for the last 3 days, since she's been living in a dorm at UC Santa Barbara. While waiting for Bri to get home from her softball practice, Walt and Alice Nan were seated at the counter while Tom was cooking and Lacie hopped up onto the counter and decided she wanted to play "go fish."
Walt and Alice were good sports, but Lacie was so loud and demanding, interrupting conversations, it was very annoying and I finally got angry with her for interrupting what Alice was saying yet again and that she should wait her turn.
Later, while Brianna was getting cleaned up from softball practice and Lacie and I were seated alone at the table waiting for the others to join us, Lacie said, quietly, "Do you know why I hate chit chat?" When I said I didn't know, she said, quietly, "because it's never about me!" which I actually thought was a nice thoughtful answer and made sense in her 7 year old mind.
We tried to leave as quickly as possible after dinner since everyone was exhausted and they needed to get some sleep...since it would be another busy day the next day
Word from Ned is that they hit a snag (more
termites) and suggested it would be best for us to stay here another day so
we will now drive home on Friday, which means we will be here for LaCie's
dance recital tomorrow.
