Observations

Should I be concerned that an ice-cream shop has replaced a bank? I mean, is ice cream now more profitable than a bank. Are we out of money and filling that void with calories?

I am in Normal, Ill this week visiting family. In visiting family, it is like having a nanny and being a stay at home mom, this is the height of decadence, but also, misses the point, not that I am not blogging from a wifi coffee shop while family plays with O, but still.

Why is it so hard to listen to your kid? I mean today, he said he didn't want to go to lunch after the zoo, what did I do, took him to lunch only to leave before drinks arrived because he lost it...hate this quality about myself...just listen to him, he knows!

I have lost 10 pounds...I hate when I reach a small goal of a much larger initiative, I lose all motivation...but alas, I ran this morning and that helped.

I like to think that the reason they start out small is so you can learn how to listen and understand eachother. You both grow-up over time (the child, literally; the parent, emotionally) and you're good. If they entered your life as adults, they would just kick you in the butt and be done with it! Seriously...
