Every morning this week, on the way to Mimi’s house, Adi asked, “Does Wrenny have school today?” When either Wren or I would reply, she always said, “But I want her to stay with me.”
“Friday, Adi,” Wren would remind her. “On Friday I get to stay with you at Mimi’s. Only 2 more days!”
This morning, like clockwork, Adi’s voice came from the backseat. “Does Wrenny have to go to school today?”
“Not today!” I exclaimed. “You’ve been waiting all week for this. Wren gets to stay with you today.”
“It must be my lucky day! I love you,” she said turning to look at her sister sitting next to her.
I didn’t even need to look. I heard the smile on her face.
