Happiness is when your 2 1/2-year-old niece on the West Coast insists on having a photo of you next to her on the couch when she’s watching “American Idol” so that she thinks you’re watching it together.

Joy is knowing that at 4 p.m. tomorrow, she’s landing in D.C. and you’re going to spend a week with her and her mom and your 7-month-old, never-before-met nephew. And yes, assuming we can align our schedules, we’ll be watching “Idol” together!
