So, this is how my brain works…
Started thinking about the week ahead, thoughts landed on tomorrow and baseball and how we’re going to get everything done, which started me thinking about how much fun I had playing sports, which made me wonder if D will make friends with the other boys on the team quickly, which made me think about my best friend when I was little, which made me think about monopoly, and that made me think about all of the sleepovers we used to have when we were little, which made me think about the fact that both my sister and I used to go over to spend the night with her sister and her or vice versa… And that’s when the light-bulb moment happened. My mom is a freaking genius. It honestly *never* occurred to me that my parents did anything other than go home and just miss us when we were at their house. Not until today did I realize what a sweet gig my parents had going. They’d trade off nights with the four girls and get to have free babysitting. How did I not get this before now? *This* is a reason to only have two kids.
Love you, Mom!
