This is a wonderful friend of ours. I just love her! She has such an amazing outlook on life and I admire her so. Thank you Jill for being so open! =)
i should have seen it coming, but i didn’t.
we were checking out books at the library, at the nifty self-service kiosk, all four kids & i. libraries are notoriously kid-friendly, so, being one of the few places i’ll venture by myself, my guard was down. & self-service kiosks, really. freaking brilliant. unless you’re attempting to maneuver one with an ambitious toddler & three other children, noses embedded in books.
my fatal mistake: not letting leif check out his own book.
without thinking, i whipped his picture book “we’re going on a bear hunt” through the bleeper & handed it to him, setting him down beside us so he could sit quietly & look at his book while i herded the other three kids through, their mountainous stacks too much for their small arms. you caught that, didn’t you? sit. quietly. you’d think i’d never met my own son…
