Like mother, like son

A good indication that you are a toddler: After asking your mother where the black crayon is, the two of you spend a good 4 minutes (“It was RIGHT HERE 2 seconds ago!” your mother exclaims. “It couldn’t have gone far…”) searching for it, only to find it clutched it in your left hand.

A good indication that you are a mother: After packing a bag to take your kids outside to play (well, that right there is an indicator, isn’t it? Seriously, we need a bag even for this simple outing: sunblock, hats, water bottles, extra pacifier, burp cloth, cell phone, keys, tissues, ETC.), you get downstairs and outside and realize you need something out of the (locked) car, and then spend a good 4 minutes searching the bag for your keys, only to find them dangling from the index finger of your right hand.

Yesterday I was at Starbucks working for the day – I called the husband to let him know that I was packing up to come and pick him up – we were chatting about something else and I was getting ready to leave but told him that I was freaking out because I couldn’t find my blackberry ANYWHERE and I swear I had it a few minutes ago. He said “aren’t you using it to talk to me right now?”. Yup, I was.
