As I write this, I’m sitting at a coffee shop downtown writing, and people watching.
It is fabulous. Simply fabulous.
I wish I were cooler and liked coffee so I could drink it while I “worked.” But I don’t so my water bottle and I will stay friends. I haven’t sat in a coffee shop and done this since college. 6+ months ago. I know! I am SO old.
Man. I MISS COLLEGE.
One of the reasons I started this blog- Mama Notes- was so that I could continue to research and learn, and then write about it. Because of my focus area in school (health and psychology) the last year of college was spent taking classes on sports nutrition, child psychology, pregnancy/development/babies/health/ etc/etc/ etc. You get the idea. I hated it and loved it at the same time. And I am so happy to be done with it.
Before my husband and I married, we dated. And before we dated, we were, I guess what people call, friends. Here we are on a Mission trip in gosh, I don’t even know, like 1986 or something. I love this picture. We are so little and totally digging each other.
As I was saying.
Im here, at a coffee shop people watching and loving this time to myself. All I can think about is Lucas. I wonder how he’s doing. I hope he’s okay. Gosh, I hope he doesn’t get hungry. I wonder if he’s finally sleeping?! I wonder if he’s crying. Do you think he’ll go to bed good tonight? When will he start sleeping better? Last night he was better. I wonder if he’s asleep now. The husband hasn’t texted me yet so he must be doing good. That was cute what he did earlier.
And on and on and on.
Isn’t it funny how as mothers, we can get a millisecond of time to ourselves but we still can’t focus on US? On this moment. On people watching and the cute lady in front of me reading Harry Potter and the newspaper at the same time while spreading cream cheese on her piece of bread that looks sort of like a burnt bagel?
I’m lucky that I have Lucas to fill my head with thoughts and visions and love all. day. long.
