I showed up early to my niece's swim practice the other day, and when she came walking in holding her mom's hand, she was looking for me in the crowd of parents hanging around the pool. I stood up from my perch by the window to stand out, see how long it took for her to find Waldo.
I knew she spotted me when I saw her face light up in a big smile.
She's coming over to spend the night tomorrow and from what I hear, she can't wait. Hell, I can't wait.
