Father on the Wall.
As opposed to fly. It's just been a delightful time, spending my first evening- soon to be overnight- I've ever spent in the kids' apartment. Unless, that is, you count the night after last November's accident, spent on a cot with two very stressed victims down a much smaller hall.

This time again involves car trouble, but way way less of it. I got here about 7:30 this morning, tried to jump their car (failed), and after we made the tow and repair appointments, I got Em to work by 9:30 and me to the Rochester office by 10.

Turned out to need a new alternator- ordered and to be put in tomorrow- and since I needed to be back this way tomorrow anyway, it made the most sense to stay. I laid in some groceries for them and have just had a nice evening looking in on their life.

Emily cooked. We ate watching a bunch of Brooklyn 99 eps on Hulu. Cats entertained and were entertained back. Then, I broke in my HBO Go app on this tablet and caught last night's Newsroom while they broke out a real video game.

It's been totally endearing just catching glimpses of them, in a plain mix of old shoe love and Mortal Kombat (or whatever game it is) while I multitasked between Will and his gang and online scorechecks on the Bills and Gang Green. (24-3 at this report- Gods they BETTER not blow this.)

They really don't need me for anything in the morning- and might not at all if she can get the six-mile ride to her car when they finish by day's end- but there's nothing like this kind of time to remind me of what we have to be thankful for:-)

Good to know the joy of just being a parent don't cease after babyhood. Please continue your "reportage from the front."
