Happy Friday! This post is coming to you live from NYC where I’m blogging alongside the bloggiest bunch of them all at BlogHer. (Just wondered how many times I could fit “blog” into a sentence.) No doubt I’ll be learning a lot more as the next couple days unfold, but here’s what I’ve learned so far this week:
Lesson #1: Just thinking about leaving my family to fly across the country for four days was enough to sprout gray hairs at a rate far faster than I could tweeze. (And these hotel bathroom lights are not forgiving.)
Lesson #3: Big is now mature enough to have conversations even I don’t understand. I overheard him talking to his GG (Great Grandma) about the conifers in our backyard. He also told me that herbivores eat leaves, but not fritters. Thank you, Dinosaur Train, for teaching my kids the science they crave and I, well…didn’t pay attention to in school.
Lesson #4: We really don’t need a pet (phew). Little plays the part by crawling over to me, purring and rubbing his head on my legs. I’ll take diapers over a liter box any day…plus his food smells a lot better. And he can talk. Show me a cat that can say “Mommy” and maybe I’ll reconsider.
Lesson #5: Average number of times you see your life flash before your eyes in a NY cab: 14. Number of times I saw my life flash before my eyes in a NY cab yesterday: 36. And no, it wasn’t an above average cab ride.
Please, share any funny or insightful lessons you learned this week. Don’t be shy. Cheers!
