An Honest Exchange.

I find that I can get more done in 15 minutes in my car than I can all day inside my house. I can pay bills, make phone calls, write out lists, organize coupons (HATE), and most importantly, primp in natural sunlight.

I sat in a parking lot this morning with my children in the backseat waiting for me to finish a bad job of plucking my eyebrows. ONE asked me when we were going to get out.

Me: We’ll get out as soon as I get myself together.

ONE: Oh.

ONE: (five seconds later) Are you together yet?

Me: No. 

ONE: Mommy? 

Me: Yes?

ONE: How do I look?

Me: You look fine.

(silence)

Me: How do I look?

ONE: Ummm … not so great.
