Back in April, I wrote this post, but I never posted it to The Green Room. It's so hot today that I thought it might help us all keep things in perspective.
First of all, it's snowing today. Seriously. Does the universe not know that it is April 28?
Second, my kids, who have not even been out of school for one entire hour, are driving me completely bonkers. Is it too early to open a bottle of wine? Somewhere in the world it is 6 p.m., so I'm saying, no.
And third, did I mention that it's snowing? It's 33 degrees, and it's SNOWING. In late April. In Chicago.
And then, there's this: Just now my little boy came into my office and kissed my cheek.
"Why did you kiss me?" I asked him.
"Because you're the best mom ever," he said.
"Yeah, right," I said. "Because the best mom ALWAYS yells and screams at her kids."
"No," he said thoughtfully, "but nobody's perfect. And you're still the best mom ever."
