Gina often waits up for me. She shouldn't because her days are very full. I arrive long after the girls are in bed. Last night, Thursday, Gina had waited up for me. We talked for about thirty minutes - catching up on each other's day. He eyes were red and she was so sleepy - but she knows that if we don't see each other then - we won't see each other that day.
I see Kelsey every midnight - when I wake her up to pee. I'll rouse her, hold her hand down the dark hall and lead her to the toilet. She will wake enough to do her business and wash her hands - often giving her daddy a sleepy smile - eyes barely open. I do have about thirty minutes each weekday to see Katie and Kelsey. I pick them up from school and drive to drop them at the office. It's about a fifteen minute drive. We catch up on their school life and then off I go to my school life.
