Snow Boots

My boy.
Who is obsessed with what he wears to storytime.
Chose to wear snow boots today.
On the wrong feet.
With messy, staticy stocking cap hair.

I pointed it all out to him before we left.
He said he didn't care.

The mom I was 9 years ago
would have never let Brookelynn or Jake
out of the house like this.
The mom I am today
is lazier smarter.
And knows how and when to pick her battles.
There is snow on the ground afterall.

I LOVE when little kids come to storytime like that! In Luke's storytime (Friday mornings for the toddlers), there's this one little boy who frequently comes in wearing a firefighter hat. It's SOOOOO cute! His mom says similar things -- "That's a battle not worth fighting."
