Three Good Things for the day:
- I picked up the RAV4 from the shop today. It was mine before we got the Odyssey, and I miss it – it’s a great car. It was nice to get a chance to drive it, and to have it back.
- I saw a dude with a Sheldon-inspired t-shirt today and we had a great conversation about Big Bang Theory. Then we moved on to Modern Family, The Amazing Race, and Survivor. I convinced him to try How I Met Your Mother. Sharing values, what a pleasure.
- On the way home from gymnastics, I did the mom-of-a-million-questions routine: “Did you have fun? Did you do anything new? What exercises did you do? Did you like your teacher? What friends did you see there?” Sam responded halfheartedly for a while then said, “Can you just stop talking? It’s a little bit boring.” It was said with no malice – just a tiny bit of annoyance. I happily said, “Yup” and shut my big mouth. I love it when she tells it like it is. Kids are the best.
