It is official. I am now an embarrassment to all of my children, even Addie. Yesterday when I took her to school she told me I couldn’t walk her in because I embarrass her. Now, I can understand if I was taking her to the public school in La Canada. Yes, perhaps I am a bit colorful for our conservative neighborhood, but Addie goes to Waldorf School! I am not the most embarrassing parent at Waldorf by far. In fact I am probably known as, “poor Addie’s Mom who can’t paint, sculpt, or even felt a handbag.” I mean really, even the one Dad that wears a suit (I am not kidding there is only one) gets to walk his kid in to the school.
|Seriously? I’m embarrassing?|
Addie: Mom please just drop me off. You embarrass me.
(I wasn’t even dancing or singing or anything.)
Me: Why? The other kids are letting their parents walk them in and they aren’t embarrassed.
Addie: The other kids parents are kings and queens.
Wow, I did not know that. Poor Addie.
I want to write about all the women CEO’s in the news but I don’t have time today because I have to decorate my house for Easter and go to yoga so I will tomorrow. I guess there is no wondering why I am not successful in business. I will however have an opinion for you on all this no flex time leaning in stuff soon.
Also, I am really into the election of the Pope. I am not Catholic but I still love watching an ancient rite take place in our lifetime. I am, of course, rooting for The Reformers (huzzah!) as opposed to The Romans (boo, hiss). If Cardinal Timothy Dolan was to be elected I might even convert. I think he is way cool. Although I don’t know if he believes in gay people or women, I am pretty sure he thinks sex with children is a bad idea. Go Reformers!! Carpe Diem!!
Check in here tomorrow to get the final and only opinion you need about women in the workforce.
