Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd


Thoughtfully penned on March 27th, 2009 and generally concerning E, Motherhood

Earlier today Little and I were walking home from my friend L’s when the son of our next-door neighbor pulled into the driveway and got out of the car. The following conversation ensued:

Little: That’s a man, Mommy.
Me: You’re right, baby.
L: He’s going in the house, Mommy.
M: Yep.
L: Mommy, where is the lady to go in the house with him?
M: Well, I guess Ms. P is at work.
L: Yeah, she’s at work. But Mommies stay home.
M: Not all Mommies stay home, some of them go to work.
L: But you stay home, Mommy!

Yes, baby, I do. And what a privilege it is!
