Dinner Date with Thomas

February 17 2024

Dinner date with Thomas tonight. Pisces Sushi with deep, rich conversation. Those conversations where you realize you made many good choices, with just a few not so good, during the past 17+ years.

Raising Thomas and Lillian alone, with no other parental involvement has been one of the most important, the toughest, and most rewarding things I have ever done.

I mean, how did I do so many things right, when I wasn’t even sure what the hell I was doing? Thomas has so much empathy and compassion for others, with a deep, true understanding of the nature of life and local and global issues. Blows my mind! 💗💗💗

I’m happy, grateful, and a bit relieved to be at this stage of the parenting journey.

I cherish these soul nourishing, conversation-filled dates, as the time approaches when I fully hand the wheel to Thomas for the next chapter of their life. 🖤🖤🖤

October 17 2014:

Lillian is spending the night with The Romano Duo so Thomas and I get to have a day and a half long date! Went for a walk and then played Thomas’ Arcade. This is what he made for the cardboard challenge. Looks easy and simple. That’s what I thought! No way! You have to flick the little balls of tape out the other side. But they get stuck in the tape traps! FUN!

Movie night for the October 2014 Camilla n Thomas date … Love watching this every October. I usually watch it alone. It was fun to watch with Thomas this time. Charge!!!!
