Today Boyd, Lila, Lou and I braved Berkeley Bowl together, our first major grocery run as a family of four. Berkeley Bowl is my least favorite place, but there’s no denying that it’s cheaper and has a better selection than Whole Foods. So, I agreed to go despite the inevitable brushes with patchouli-dipped hipsters “being in their bodies” while cutting in line.
We were just in the driveway getting ready to leave when Lila realized that she had forgotten her Hoppy bunny. Boyd said, “Don’t worry, I’ll get him,” and went back inside. As he walked up the porch steps, Lila watched out the window and then turned to me and said, “He’s a special boy.”
