Saturday Morning At 6:47am
Last night my son said, "This is one of the great kitchen counters of all time."
Being a parent of young children is such a large job. It's like a camping trip, you pack everything you can into a car and take it with blind faith out to the wilderness. You get there and realize that you have forgotten your flashlight but you have the cayenne. You make something spicy to eat and sit by the fire. When you get home, some day when you are putting away the laundry or sorting the mail, your kid tells you, "Mom, you know when you forgot the flashlight? That was one of the great camping trips of all time." It's not just that you can't tell if you are doing it right, it's that you don't get to say what any indicators that you are doing it right might look like.
