I share his sentiments and add a few boring (mom) things I've been thinking about.
- I'm not going to feel bad for embarrassing my kids later in life because I feel like Gwen makes a fool of me about 100 times a day. It's usually a less public showing but she makes up for that in quantity and gusto.
- I can't help but get nostalgic about the fact that Gwen's going to be 1 year old in a week. Time has never felt trickier. It definitely feels like she's been here that long but I can also remember walking out of the hospital with her like it was yesterday. It makes me sad to know I can never hold tiny Gwen again. I know there will be other babies I can hold but not a Gwen one. Anyway, same old story.
- I got an email from our energy company today telling me that "New York City has only seen extended week-long heat waves like that seven times since tracking started in 1896." Lucky us. So help me if we get another one.
- What can we do for our family talent show? So far our brainstorming sessions have landed us with re-enacting scenes from various television shows. I'm pretty sure this is a bad idea, please help.
And now some pictures that simply couldn't go unposted.
I was tempted to photoshop our grody walls/floor but this is reality, guys. 100 years of poorly painted reality. Left to drip dry. I try not to think about it.
