Xavier is gone for the night....

Xavier is spending the night at my mom's tonight... this is the first time that he has stayed the night with mom just for the enjoyment of doing so... He spent the night the night after Colin was born because we were at the birthing center and we had no idea how the night would go and we were exausted.. and then 2 1/2 weeks later he spent the night again when Colin was in the hospital for 5 days and I stayed there the whole time so Simon was alone with Xavier and needed a little break for night....but besides that he has never slept away...
So, I just drove and hour to Montreal and dropped him off at my mom's... they are going to have a sleepover and then Tomorrow she is bringing him to Disney on Ice: 100 years of Magic... I think he is going to have so much fun... and he was excited to see Woody and Buzz for 'real'.... it is just weird though that he is starting to have his own life and experiences without me... I feel a bit left out, but I also am proud that he becoming such a "big boy"...
On the way back home I saw a hitchhiker and I thought she looked really interesting and thought about stopping but it wasn't a good place to stop... I thought about her a few more times on the road... about half way home I saw her again and decided to stop... It isn't something that I have ever done but she just reminded me on two people that I really love... I was right.. she is a organic farmer, working at apple picking while she is on unemployment and was on the way to a poetry festival.... We had a nice conversation and I drove a little further to get her to the ferry so that she could get to where she was going in time....
I hitchiked a lot as a little girl with my mom and there is something about it that I remember... there was always a great conversation...
