Some may remember how, back when my lupus was new and my children small, back when my friend Lisa offered to trade a few hours’ babysitting time every morning, swim therapy for me and then gym time for her, how her little boy David used to leave some favored object, usually a toy, stashed away somewhere in my house every time to make sure he’d have to come back to get it. Somewhere where I wouldn’t see it and go chasing after their car, somewhere where only he would know.

Every time. I think he started doing that before he turned three.

Richard, Kim, and Parker flew home this afternoon.

And David’s going to love seeing what we found after they left.

LOL!! That’s awesome. I never tire of that David and the left behind item tale…

I remember that story and love that the binky is still with you.

do you think they can make it all the way home without that?

I’m betting that Parker’s mom is as prepared as my daughter is — always carry a spare!

Hey, Gramma, please just leave it right there. Then I’ll know where it is the next time I visit.

What a wonderful (way too short) visit you had. That smile on your face (in the earlier post) says it all. And I still love the story of the left-behind very special toy.

Are you sure he didn’t leave it behind for you and for him, rather than just for him?
