I introduced Norah to puddle-jumping today. She had so much fun and kept asking, “Mama, dat pell?” (that smell?) as she sniffed the puddles. She was soaked, cold, and happy when I carried her in for a warm bath. One day, we’ll puddle-jump Pinnacle-style.
This morning, she “read” my Alfie Kohn book Unconditional Parenting for about 20 minutes. She pretended to turn the pages and read aloud a complicated story about Scott going to work. When she finished, she brought the book to me and declared, “Mommy, good story.” Smart child. It is a great little book.
Meanwhile, this hot guy just called me and asked me out on a date tonight. So, I better change out of my “mom” clothes (prana yoga pants/chacos) and get into my “outdoor girl” clothes (prana climbing pants/chacos) to impress this sexy man. My wardrobe is pretty simple…
ah, julie, how i miss being there to grow with your family! we were just getting to know you, and while i love reading about the ladies, i wish i was close by to see it — i will take with joy this long-distance friendship!
