|(no bribe needed)|
he is playing in the living room - which happens to open into the laundry room.
at the top of his voice he is yelling
i say - 'yes wyatt'
he says - 'where are you?'
he says - 'i miss you'
he feels the quiet house too.
he is happy to sit and have me hold him until his kids come home.
and i think i will do just that.
