Heading to the Bars

In a time when it seems all children are hooked on electronic devices, I can proudly proclaim that thus far we've been able to keep our kids in the dark about things like the Nintendo DS, Wii, Leap Frog, etc. Instead, the girls rely on a great sense of imagination and imitative play to guide their amusement.

Imagine my surprise when my lovelies gathered their babies and announced they were, "Heading to the bars." Of course my mind lead me right down the path of assumption: My children have concluded that it is indeed okay to take their babies out for an adult beverage.

My pride had been crushed. But this quick-thinking mom knew enough to get to the bottom of it without letting on to my train of thought, "I'm sorry, where did you say you were headed?" I inquired.

"We're moving on to the bars," Abby replied. And just like that Lauren took a single baby and effortlessly motioned her over the imaginary bar. Ah Hah. Gymnastics.

I'm a teacher by trade, writer at heart & mom in every sense of my being. I never considered writing as a profession, but after I got married and began moving around the country, I began sharing my adventures, misadventures & updates through a sort of e-mail newsletter. I found a true passion in unconventional story-telling that has followed me into motherhood.
