griffin and i met a friend
here at cafe de flore.
this cafe has been on my "go to" list
since before we moved here.
griff was in rare form
so we lasted about 20 minutes.
even though it was just a few minutes..
it was such a treat to meet her
and her husband.
i should have known better i guess.
sitting at a cafe is not fun
for a 3 year old.
i try it on a regular basis.
this move hasn't been easy on griffy.
he still asks if we can go home.
we have a framed photo of the bridge
to our beach back in the states
that is in our kitchen.
griff asks daily,
"mom, we go there?"
i think it might have been a bit easier on him
if we had our stuff.
familiar surroundings for him.
if this doesn't feel like home yet for me..
it certainly doesn't for my 3 year old.
i have put off potty training,
moving him to his own room/bed
i'm letting certain behaviors slide a bit.
if we were "back home"
i would be on top of those things now.
but, this is home now
and i think griffin has been through
enough transition already.
i know all of these things
will come in time.
and then i will sit
for hours and hours
at a cafe.
