Lesson #1: Though I may have gone to the Dave Matthews Band concert to relive my college days, I was reminded that it’s just as much fun to get out and toast good friends in the now-we-have-kids days. (Even if now we have to get up around the same time we were just going to bed back then.)
Lesson #2: You don’t always appreciate a good thing (or things) until they’re gone. (In my case, Little’s ear tubes.) Then again, there are some things you appreciate more once they are gone. (In my case, Little’s latest dose of antibiotics.)
Lesson #3: Snails can live for a surprisingly long time in a toy basket.
Lesson #4: Though it may have taken a sick kid begging me to lay down with him to make it happen, I do love a good weekend nap.
Lesson #5: Whether you love ’em (and oh how I loved the Glee, Modern Family and Mad Men winners) or hate ’em, you’ve gotta give tonight’s Emmy Award winners credit for thanking their parents.
I hope you had a rowdy, healthy, surprising, restful, celebratory week too! If you have a story to share, please leave a comment.
