We were saying goodbye this morning, me sending him off into the Big Wide World. He's on his own now. I worried, 'What if someone is mean to him? Will he eat enough? I hope he sleeps all right because if he doesn't get enough sleep he's cranky.' We checked his bag to make sure he had everything. I rubbed a bit of toothpaste off his cheek and smoothed his hair. 'He looks so grown-up,' I thought. 'Better go,' he said. 'Wait, let me take your picture!'
Wait... you didn't think I was talking about Jamie, right? No, it's Steven I sent off to the Big Wide World today, on his very first business trip. And before anyone tsks about me infantilising my husband, I'm doing all the child-rearing for the next 48 hours so that gives me license to do just about anything. Except laundry.
