Wednesdays are non-school days for Jude. While Bradley thought that he was going to miss miss miss his boy (and he really does miss him), he’s found that three hours four times a week isn’t really that much time apart. Together they are finding a rhythm, boys in the morning doing man’s work, running errands, then in the afternoon Bradley does a last minute tune-up on the house before he sets the alarm to pick up the kids on time and gets lost in his work.

Wednesdays are different though. Wednesday are for park trips, explorations, for opportunities to do things, just the men, in this series of fleeting Wednesdays. As last year, then, this summer wore down, Bradley felt the future absence of his family acutely. But with these Wednesdays it’s like they’ve been given one more year to make the most of their time together.

This particular Wednesday was lucky. Bradley found a coupon for a free breakfast at McDonald’s, so he surprised Jude with a men’s morning out. Jude marveled that he actually got to visit that restaurant, much less with his dad. Cheers for boy’s day!

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
