Monday Morning Musings…Oh, wait. It’s Tuesday
September 8, 2009
…Which shows the muddled state of my brain this morning.
Today is my birthday. I am 34 years old today. Yikes!
Bridget is sleeping in (still!) and I did something I’ve never done before: I sent the children off to school by themselves. They already walk themselves home, but I like to accompany them in the morning because, how will I know if they arrive safely? Also, I like to think that those last minutes with Mommy will be a balm to their little spirits all day. Delusional thinking, probably.
Speaking of “Free Range Kids” I’d like to direct readers of this blog to one of my favorite blogs: Free Range Kids. (Clever sentence, I know.) Lenore Skenazy is hilarious. And though this is a post from a few days ago, it’s pertinent today because today is the day of President Obama’s speech to the schoolchildren of America. Here’s Lenore’s perspective, and I couldn’t agree more…
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
