This is why I like her:
I felt far more put together than usual--almost arrogantly so--because I was so proud of the way I pulled a suitcase, pushed a stroller, jiggled a baby, and balanced a camera, a laptop, a cell phone, and three boarding passes all at once that I actually had to consciously tell myself to wipe the "Hey, look at me, I'm doing it!" expression off my face. Actually, it took seeing a mom wearing spiked heels and leather pants, pushing a twin stroller and holding a toddler's hand that did it for me. Because I may have made it across the country along with two kids but I sure as hell didn't look that good doing it. I wore my ugly shoes for comfort and my scarf was wet from rinsing it in the airport sink after the fringe dragged in the toilet. But hey, I did it. (from Bloom)
Speaking of good books, my latest post is up at the Homeschool Share blog--a review on 26 Fairmount Avenue, a big favorite around here!
