Today, being Saturday, is frequently errand day. The Manchild was dropped off at the Smash (video game) tournament at UW, Michelle was out getting her hair did, and I decided to get the grocery shopping done.
On these weekend days when I errand alone, I like to listen to NPR. The weekend programming is a welcome respite from politics, bad news and dumb people we hear about all week.
Today, they were discussing stories told by kids of things that happened to them simply in the course of being a kid. This started me thinking of all the stuff that I did when I was younger, and wondering how my mom survived, not just with me, but with 5 of us!
