Well, get this! I’ve been give the Wise Owl Award from my pal at The Diaper Diaries. I am truly flattered, thank you! I would agree that I have been given a good deal of wisdom. Unfortunately, I would also have to agree with anyone who says that it is underutilized a good portion of the time.
Here is an award I will most certainly NOT need to worry about writing an acceptance speech for. That would be Mother of the Year. Yesterday, while I was having a brief meeting in the lobby of the Health Department, Maybelle pushed the elevator button, and stepped on when the doors opened. They closed, she went up a floor, and got off.
This was about the time I noticed she wasn’t standing by me anymore.
Poor A.P. was in complete distress. The person I was meeting with very kindly went up to the next floor to retrieve her, and I stayed put in case she came back down on her own. A few moments later, she emerged from the elevator, all smiles. Just going for a little ride, you know how it is. Or hopefully you keep better track of your children and you don’t know how it is. Wise? Maybe. Observant? Not so much.
