So, today Spencer and I had to run by Safeway after dropping C off for school (I was out of diced tomatoes, and was having a hard time with that, when I realized that they were on sale — 10 for 10 at Safeway today). ANYWAY, I saw this mom who was being so fun in the store. She and her son (who looked to be about 18 months) were just playing as she walked through the grocery store, she’d pretend the cart was out of control and you could tell they were just enjoying each other.
Flash to me, checking out the labels on everything, checking my receipt to make sure that it’s right (57% savings today, thank you very much)… just trying to dot all my I’s, as it were. I realized I am so rarely the fun mom.
So, since it’s early out EVERY day this week (lucky, lucky me) I pledge to do some more fun stuff with the kiddos. I’m not the mom that’s apt to flounce down on the floor and play cars with them but I’ll do what I can.
