Tell it Like it is

Recently a friend of mine asked me what is like to share day to day life with a toddler. (She is single, but has a fabulous love life and sometimes contemplates the leap into motherhood.) At that moment Devon was nestled in his favorite spot on my hip and simultaneously pulling my hair, grabbing at the phone and smearing oatmeal all over my neck. So I decided on honesty and told her it was like having a 22 pound tumor attached to my hip and having only the use of my left hand to perform ALL every day tasks. I heard a small intake of air on the other end of the line and she said, “Oh. Okay. Well, I gotta go then.”

I like to think that I am sort of a population control, that my honesty actually contributes to the well being of the world.
