Father asked us what was God’s noblest work. Anna said men, but I said babies. Men are often bad, but babies never are.
— Louisa May Alcott
Young Benjamin turned one on Saturday:
We stopped by Nate’s to watch football that afternoon, so I got to see the tiny people for the second weekend in a row, which is never a bad thing.
Later that night, David and I had dinner with Aimee and Tim at a Japanese steak house, which was so much fun. I had a drink bigger than my head, called a Green Dinosaur, which was basically a Long Island Iced Tea with Midori instead of Coke. It was good. Our chef was fantastic, the food was probably the best I’ve had at a restaurant like that, and for once, I didn’t stuff myself (and I counted everything – I’m back on track, baby).
It was so great to spend time with Aimee again – I haven’t seen her in a while – and Tim and David hit it off, because they’re both kind of nerdy (as Aimee said to me on a trip to the restroom). All in all, it was a great day!
