Half the christmas cards are in the mail. That counts right?
I’ve been in Canmore for almost two years but I don’t think I’ll ever get used to 2 things: how nice people are and how unafraid of snow and cold they are. Case in point? There’s a blizzard out there, but dance class had to go on so I subbed. People were out jogging and walking their dogs like nothing. And one of the dads brushed off my car. I will never be able to live anywhere else .
I’ve come to the realization that I need some mommy friends my own age. At the library’s story time today I asked a baby wearing a fox shirt “What does the fox say?” (Yes, in *the* voice) and I was met with blank stares. I almost ventured into adding “kakakakakakakow!” But I didn’t want the child to cry when he realized his parents weren’t in the know.
And then another friend said that she saw my boots in the store- she had thought that I had them personalized as she didn’t know Hunter was a brand. I mean, I guess on one hand that’s pretty cool that she’s so rich and so unmaterialistic (like honestly, poor baby K is the poor one of the group and we definitely are not without) but on the other hand it was rude awakening. I don’t know anyone my age who doesn’t have a pair of Hunters!
I feel like I am the young, loud, obnoxious mom. Hopefully it’s not actually that way, but sometimes things stick out and I realize I am a whole lot younger.
Going through the Black Friday flyers and wondering if it’s worth heading to Calgary with baby in tow… And wondering if it’s terrible that the sale that I’m most excited for is 50% off cloth diapers. Is it still a sale if you’re buying something you wouldn’t buy otherwise?
Had a much deserved glass of wine with the mommies sans babies after work… So nice to gab!
It’s funny, we were talking about the post baby haze that is the first few months of mommyhood, and one of the girls pointed out that she was always amazed that I was put together and my little guy was so happy and well behaved. Funny, because I felt the exact opposite and always thought the same about her! Just goes to show that we all have more in common than we think.
