After School


After school is a happy time at our house. I pick up Federico at 2:40 (except Tuesdays, when I do a group in Palm Springs and he gets a ride home with our neighbor, or stays at school and does homework in the library until I can get there at 4:00), and we are home by 3:00. He changes into comfortable clothes, has a snack, and does his homework at the kitchen table until dinner. I am usually cooking, or doing something in the kitchen. He and Brad like a sweet treat after dinner, so I have been baking cookies at least once a week. I am available to answer a question, quiz him for tests or chat during a "coffee break". I t is time we both enjoy, and Federico tells me about his teachers, what happened at school, and what he is studying. Last week, Federico got As on his tests in both Economics and Biology. Sometimes life is like a bowl of cherries (especially when you keep cookie dough in the freezer!)

You are making me cry and also you make me miss those growing up "mom" moments. Life is preciously sweet for you my friend and my heart smiles for you knowing this.

Very impressive that Federico is doing so well in school. I can sense your happiness in your posts!

I love the cookies.

Cathy Butero:

Blue ribbons for you Palma!


Please -please adopt me when Federico leaves!
