While I have never (ever) been one to truck a small supermarket of snacks around with me, I remember well the days of babies and toddlers, messy tables and truncated conversation. Mostly, those days are behind us. With all of our kids at ages where the possibility of rational conversation exists, these crazy outings are a thing of the past. The kids are all fantastic companions when we are out, capable of providing terrific company.
Having said that, I enjoyed a rare treat today. Eric's mom has the kids, so I took my Saturday papers to the cafe and read for about two hours.
Doesn't that look civilized? All the more so when I compared myself to the people next to me.
