Yesterday I drove down to Albuquerque for the Christian Association of Parent Educators (CAPE) annual convention. Last night some of the other Santa Fe homeschooling moms and I went to dinner, and when the hostess asked, “Do you need any children’s menus?” I can’t tell you the euphoria I felt saying, “No!”
Isn’t that awful? I love my children, and of course miss them now when I’m away from them, but eating with them in restaurants is just so much work, and it felt so, so good to be able to have a meal with friends and know that the only person whose food consumption and table manners I had to be concerned with were my own.
Motherhood. It makes you appreciate the little things
