Ben wanted to have a "playdate" with his good friend Lauren today however, it ended up that she was not at school today. She was out sick with a fever and a sore throat.
He was very bummed that she wasn't able to come over, so on the way home from school I let him use my cell phone to call her.
It was a very sweet conversation.
He told her what she missed that day in class and that he hoped she felt better.
Then the conversation moved on to a more important seven year old topics.
By the time we pulled in our driveway they had plans to meet in cyberspace.
Ben grabbed his backpack and was in the house almost before I had the car in park. By the time I was in the front door he was logged in and the cyber play date had begun.
Who knew that it would ever come to this?
