The Department of Ongoing…Posted: December 1, 2014 | |
Efforts: Go read my second book review at Postmodyrn, please. It’s about Anne Lamott’s Operating Instructions (Thanks to a dear reader for the suggestion!). A funny, wise memoir about the first year of parenting.
And in ongoing Sagas (in this case, of me and the double stroller): The weather today was luminous, and I decided to pick Das Big Boy up from school on foot. So Little Liebchen and I walked the two miles there in increasingly chilly weather. I got to have a moment of smugsbyness as several parents praised my efforts. Then the skies opened up and no one thought I was so clever anymore and everyone felt bad for me. Thankfully my neighbor was there to pick up her (incredibly kind and lovely) children, and had an umbrella to lend me. And I laughed at myself for pretending it was a good idea to do stuff on foot.
Fortunately, it dried out. And then I ran into not one, but two friends on the way home (also both on foot). So it turns out it was a good idea after all. So there! Smugsbyness regained!
