A Shade Shadier
We landed in Washington D.C. yesterday and for the first time in more than a year we actually brought Maya with us on vacation. Yes Ali and I travel all the time and no we never bring our child with us. Let me count the ways I am a bad parent…
Sorry, I ran out of fingers.
For instance, I had no idea that Maya was so utterly unimpressed by some things…
“I don’t care about the big elephant. Can we go get some chips now?”
And yet so impressed by others.
“So dad’s iPhone games work in Los Angeles AND Washington DC? Neat.”
I also had no idea that Ali, the master of all things technology-related, wouldn’t be able to take a photo of the Lincoln Memorial with me in it.
And yet he managed to make our hotel room a miniature replica of the cable-ridden mess we call our living room.
I learned a few things about Abby Cadabby as well. Did you know that Abby is allergic to pork, ham, bacon, raisins, sparkling water, and exercise?
Me neither. She sounds a bit high-maintenance to be honest.
And who knew that Maya would be more interested in playing with the pool noodles than she would be in going on a tour of the Capitol Building?
No judgement here as I kind of was too actually.
Finally….who knew that Ali would take off to a spur-of-the-moment “Microsoft meeting” halfway through our Capitol Building tour?
That Ali…he’s shadier than I gave him credit for.
