the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Weekend play date

Over the weekend Leta’s best friend Gigi and Gigi’s little sister Lola (not pictured) came over for a several hour play date. Yes, Gigi and Leta look very much related. Same height, same hair, same need for glasses. Gigi’s mother and I commiserated over the fact that when the older sister has a play date, the younger sister always feels left out and spends the entire time pestering the older girls. So now we usually host a double play date so that all four of them can pester each other equally. It’s a win for everyone involved, especially the mother whose kids are over at the other house. Delicious, delicious alone time. That I usually spend texting, “Is everything okay? Is Leta using her manners? Is Marlo being a beast?”

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging.

That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
