Priorities of a Mama

I hope you had a great Mother’s Day. We had a lovely brunch with family and a dinner grilled by SwingDaddy, and I made a bunch of baby food, changed diapers, and played lightsabers in between. All in all, a highly satisfactory day. Life is different than it used to be, but it’s good.

I was cleaning the trunk of my car this afternoon, mostly to stay occupied while keeping an eye on the little dude as he scampered around the yard, and sorted through the emergency supplies that I stashed five years ago when we bought the car.

Not the shiny new survival kit accompanied by diapers and wipes – this was old stuff, like old sneakers and sweats, in case the car broke down and I need to hike or change a tire. A blanket, in case someone was suffering from cold. Ballet slippers. You know, because back in those days, one of the worst emergencies I could imagine was being somewhere with an opportunity to dance and not have dance shoes.

And a happy belated Mother's Day.

But if you take them out, there might be a ballet emergency!

Glad you had a nice Mother's Day.

Yep, I still keep dance shoes in my car. And all my petticoats, but that's more because I have nowhere better to store them, not so much because I anticipate needing them in an emergency situation. :-P
