Family By Choice

Since I've been here on the west coast, I've read my friend's kid's daughter to sleep or near sleep.  Depending on the book, it took 5 minutes or 15 minutes.  Yet, my ex told me I'd be a bad father.  And that sort of astounds me.  I worked at Echo Hill Camp for years and had a hand in raising some amazing kids in my lifetime.  

So, I'm hanging out with Aya, playing the amazing castle-guessing game (which it is that amazing).  And she just wants to stop.  I was up 5 cards, but she just said, "Jon Pauley, let's play a different game."  Not, I quit, not I give up.  She said, "I know you are going to win and, you won, but let's try a different game."

And we did.  It was called Blockus??????  And she won.  Legit.
