Circles Around Me

I like to think I can run circles around most people; I work full time, I am raising two little kids, and I prepare almost every morsel of food my family consumes from scratch. I am organized, and hard working. I am devoted. I move fast and multitask like no one you've ever seen.

But last night, my little bitty cherubs ran circles around me. Literally. As we were coming out of Costco we bumped into my colleaguem, Ed, and his wife. While trying to make polite conversation my children ran around me like I was the center of the ring around the rosies! I felt like the world's worst mom. Then I laughed thinking of the symbolism of their activity.

My kids Rock! ROCK!

S. said yesterday that she is never getting married. She says she wants to always live with me. I told her she may change her mind. She will probably meet someone special some day and feel differently about it. She insisted that would not be the case.

Pink Cake

S. has wanted to bake a pink strawberry cake for a long time. We did it yesterday. I took some of it to work and S. asked me to be sure to take a special piece for Edward.

S. really loves Edward. S. is an extremely good judge of character. I have worked with Edward for a decade. Never once have I seen him cross, let alone angry or frustrated and believe you me, there were many times when no one would have blamed him!
