Last night we had Lucy and Alex over for dinner. Lucy is Josh’s godmother, and an amazing one at that, and we hadn’t seen each other since we got back from California. Nothing fancy, just some dinner (beef wellington) and catching up. Josh even managed to stay up late and did a very good job of entertaining himself (for the most part) while the adults chatted. A very nice evening all around.
Lucy also brought over some books for Josh, a belated Christmas gift, and one of them was “The Cat in the Hat,” a classic which Josh doesn’t have and had not read yet. I don’t think Dr. Seuss is quite as big in England as in America, as both Tim and Lucy said they don’t remember reading his books when they were growing up.
But last night and tonight we have read it to Josh and it has been a big hit already, so thank you Lucy!
