I’m feeling a bit dissed today.  Ty’s class is going on a field trip to top off the year.  Turns out, I’m not invited.  He tells me that if his girlfriend wasn’t assigned to the lane next to him, he’d invite me, but since she is, he can’t.  Boo.  That’s all I’m gonna say about that.

And as I write this, he’s chatting on the phone with one of his best friend about the girls at school in the other room.  When did this happen?  How did we get here?  Why is he doing this to me?  But more importantly, how do I make it stop?  What happened to Spiderman and Toy Story?  Grubby little hands reaching for me to pick him up, bedtime stories and tight hugs around my neck?

I’m not ready.  And he doesn’t even care.
