My friend Joanna is weeks from giving birth. I see her at drop off with her first grader and her toddler son- who is also Rex’s BFF. Parking at our school is difficult for those of us not carrying around an extra 40 lbs. Finding a place to park near a crack house, stepping over dog poo while holding two kids hands is our morning. Too boot Los Angeles is having record setting heat. Today it’s 101. October. 101. Yeah, global warming, I believe you.
Seeing her waddle in and telling her son “no, I can’t pick you up.” I had a deep flashback. “Don’t you just want to kill everyone?” I queried. Yes, said without hesitation ( which is one of the reasons I like her)
The funny thing is I actually think my cranky gave me some energy. Mother nature’s way of pushing you through those final, heavy, back breaking months. MOMS to be… especially those with older kids, this ones for you!
