A Week of Firsts
After trying to post this a million times last night, WordPress finally stopped torturing me this morning…
We had a lot of firsts this week…
1. Not only was it Maya’s first week in kindergarten summer camp…
But it was the first time I realized she wouldn’t be a little kid, talking my ear off, and demanding sparkling water forever.
For the first time I almost had a tear in my eye. But then she demanded I hold her lunchbox and our “touching moment” flitted away almost as quickly as it came.
2. This week was my first time posting anything remotely controversial. I must admit that I was a bit nervous because usually my idea of controversy involves my nightly arguments with Maya about brushing her teeth.
“You have to sing Happy Birthday TWICE while brushing Maya. Once is not enough.”
Thank you all for your feedback regarding Gisele and the breastfeeding issue. This may have been the first time my brother commented and I must say that I felt pretty special. First time that’s happened in a while.
3. Today was the first time I visited Lemonade where I met several new (to me) L.A. bloggers.
I was late and I’m never late! Another first but not one that I am very proud of. When I finally settled in guess who showed up to ruin my newfound calmness?
She was dropped off by her father. This wasn’t the first time that’s happened but even I have to admit Ali had a good reason to cut his father-daughter bonding time short. In any case Maya made herself useful by taking a few photos…
I had a great time today and I can’t wait to meet all of you again. Thank you Lynn for organizing such a nice lunch.
I’m off to attend a wedding now and it’ll be my first time visiting the Four Seasons in Westlake Village. I’m sure it won’t be the first time I spend 2 hours on the freeway getting to a wedding though. I imagine Ali and I will be getting into an argument about one or more of the following: the traffic/radio station/temperature control/511/him putting on a tie BEFORE we pull up to the hotel instead of in the lobby.
But it will be the first time I attempt to keep my mouth shut. We’ll see how long that holds.
Edited to add: Ali put his tie on in the lobby…I kept my mouth shut. It was a first.
