Yesterday my husband offered to take my daughter to school the following morning and we promptly reminded him that tomorrow she had a Christmas Concert instead of her usual trip to the Library in the AM and that her Soccer class was cancelled oh and by the way, it was Tuesday so the babysitter was coming and she didn't have school anyway.
Our son on the other hand had a birthday party that previous Friday, basketball and gymnastics class that Saturday and swimming that following Monday with a trip to see Avatar later in the week.
I realized in that moment that my children's lives have a lot more 'Swagger' than mine. I almost can't even keep track of it all as I sit on my perch in the house (while on maternity leave with our third gem) going a whole lotta nowhere. Sometimes I lament to myself about how un-sexy my own social life has become (I am a chic busy mom after all) but then I think about the well adjusted upstanding citizens my husband and I are creating and it makes it all worth it.
I will however, continue to put interstingly fake appointments in my calendar that pop up and remind me how fabulous I am (or NOT) regardless...
