Always a Mom

So we had the Girls Only Weekend. It was a blast! We always have fun. I'm glad I went and can't wait to start planning on the next one! (There is already some buzz and talk).

But, here is the thing, I am always in "mom" mood.... or so I have learned.

Exhibit one: We went shopping on Saturday. I noticed myself doing head counts all the time. Something I am always doing since I am always out numbered (3 kids - 1 mom).

Exhibit two: Not only was I doing a head count but I was usually one of the last in the group. I wasn't the only, thank gawd! or I would have felt really bad. The couple of us in the back commented about this.... We had to make sure nobody was left behind.

Exhibit three: We went to a bar Saturday night. It was great! I ordered a drink called Sex on the Street because I wanted to tell people that I went to Dallas and had Sex on the Street. Ha, ha! See not always a mom.... but here is the mom part. There was a live band. The guitarist's shoe was untied. Yes, folks, that's right. I had to fight the urge to go tie his shoe and no not because he was cute.... Just because as a mom if I see a shoe untied, I want to tie it.

Laugh its okay. I don't mind. At least I didn't try to cut any one's food or spit on a napkin to clean their face. Right? That's something, isn't it?

Sorry I haven't been around lately. I've been...ya know...single parenting! I get behind on my reading a lot, but I always catch-up.
Glad you're going out and having a good time! That's good for you.

Always a mom, not necessarily a bad thing.
