Did my best to take a fun house mirror picture of my sister and I at Robin des Bois. Her birthday is this weekend, so I thought I would treat her to nice dinner, since her hubby offered to baby-sit. Its amazing how different sharing a meal is when her the 3 year-old isnít chirping away. Itís like when she was single and lived in Chelsea a few years ago. We would have these great marathon relationship talks over brunch. We made a deal that she should come into the city sans kid more often. In exchange, I should be better about going to the suburbs. Iíve been in ďmust-surf-every-weekendĒ mode for a while, and have been giving the family the shaft.
Highlight of the evening is she decided on what to name the future baby. Itís a boy and they will name him, James William. James will honor my dad and grandpa; William will honor my brother-in-lawís dad, who passed away when he was young. Iím sure all the grandparents are secretly pumped.
