Mommy mode is peculiar.

Now, I am not talking about the 'I haven't heard him in awhile - he must be getting into trouble' phenomenon. I am pretty used to it. The fact that he was out of earshot did make that a little useless.

No, it was the fact that, as soon as it looked like I was about to get into an absorbing conversation, I would get the overwhelming complusion to find out where Thomas was. He's 7! I shouldn't be hanging over him quite so badly anymore. And he was doing a rather good job of staying within eyesight (barring a few plants that would interfere.) Sigh. Mother Hen with one chick.
