Erienne's parents went to sleep early [like most parents], so we had to when I spent the night.
My mom has always been a night owl. I knew she would be up. I'd pretend I was going to the bathroom and walk over to Erienne's window in the living room and look out. Sure enough- of all the houses in our big building, the light was on in our living room. I would picture my Momma watching tv... my sisters still up with her. My mom's great big laugh. :)
I wanted to be home. After the playing was done and everything was quiet because night had come, I missed home.
At 25, I still do.
