A Sunday Favorite
Each Sunday Chari at Happy to Design gives us a chance to revisit older posts that some of you may have missed. I have been using this weekly event as an opportunity to post things I wrote before I got followers.
The original idea behind my blog was to write about life with LBeau. In fact, at the time I started blogging my children were all eager to participate. I should have known better. None of them ever made a single contribution, and thus my blog has evolved into a conglomeration of thoughts and observations that include not only life with LBeau but other stuff as well. Today I am sharing one of my earliest posts about LBeau.
About 13 years ago, LBeau and I started walking every night in our neighborhood. We mapped out a two-mile route that took us about 35 to 45 minutes to complete. Shortly after we started, our friend Glenda joined us, and we gradually added more friends until our group numbered 10 at one point.
When it was just the three of us, we often had some unusual conversations. Glenda and I said that we were educating LBeau in the ways of women. One of the earliest of those talks was about bikini waxing. LBeau had never heard of such and wondered why any woman would put herself through such torture.
Our group is now back to just the three of us, since our other friends have gradually dropped out. Last night we were talking about Ben's and Claire's bridal registry. Glenda asked me about their china and stemware patterns, and I told her that they had registered for a Kate Spade crystal pattern.
Glenda and I were impressed that he had learned enough to know that Kate Spade designed purses. We think his education has come a long way since our bikini wax conversation and that he's ready to lead the men's team in a game of Battle of the Sexes.
By the way, we also noted that Glenda and I are out of the bikini business, but that doesn't mean we aren't still hot.
