First off, read this post
by my friend Marsha to find out how I spent last night. Oh, what fun! Above, you will find a picture of the delicious chocolates my Secret Pal sent me. Yummy. Also, the national election results today make me a very happy woman. See, good news and I am happy.
However, something happened at my local gym today that is giving me pause. I've been working out regularly for a few months now while Buttons stays in the "playroom". Buttons has had a bit of an adjustment, but is now pretty comfy there. Mostly. Today, when we walked into the playroom, our friend, 2 year-old"Helen" was already there and we said hello. One of the women who work there, "Monica", said "oh, you already know Helen. When she came in, I thought Buttons would be really happy to see her." Ok, Helen is Japanese, this was her first time in the nursery and what I assume Maureen was saying "hey, here is another Asian child, so they will have so much in common and maybe this will help Buttons be more comfy." At 2, I don't think kids have a sense of all this yet. I know my brother pointed out his buddy in pre-school by telling us he was the kid in the corner with the curly hair. His buddy also happened to be African-American. I don't know. I'm still working through why this chaps me and what to do about it, so I don't really have an ending for this post that ties it all together cause it's still messing around in my brain.
Tomorrow I hope to do a knitting post.
