so sophomoric

Today I met the Oldest Carrotstick at school for ...


(I was the only mom there. I wonder if I embarrassed her. I don't really care if I did, cuz that's what moms do.)

But. It was sad for me.

(Have you seen the kids that go to High School? They are big. And old. And some of the things they do and say frighten me. It about makes my blood run cold in my veins to think of sending her there.)

And then, to top it off, my baby is going to turn eight and be baptized in about 10 1/2 days.

In the words of the great philosopher, David After Dentist, "Is this real life? . . . Why is this happening to me? Is this going to be forever?"

I have to admit, some days I wish I didn't feel anything. It's hard being a mom.
