Occasionally, my wireless mouse prompts the on-screen message, “Batteries are low and should be replaced.” And I’m starting to take it personally. Like it’s a message for me that my batteries are low and that I should be replaced.

On a lighter note: Twice this week, I have left Auggie alone to play by himself for a few minutes. Both times, he tracked me down to show off his newest skill: undressing himself! He walked in completely naked, like nothing was amiss.

My son, the exhibitionist.
