    Things I never thought I’d do

    Consider this my confessional post. This last week I comitted two parental offenses I never thought I would.

    Offense 1: taking a cab without a carseat for my kid. Yep, around the local 5m radius, I gave up the carseat while taking a taxi. Mostly because following those short trips we do a crapload of walking and lugging a convertible carseat (along with the other stuff we carry) hasn’t been too practical. I do insist we take it whenever we take a cab/car out of town though. While I don’t love being part of the polluting world I miss my own car and the ‘safe’ conveniences it comes with.

    Offense 2: I kept my kid up until 10pm at a restaurant. While G has adapted a bit more to local time, he’s off by 3 hours accros the board. He wakes up at 9:30, wants lunch no earlier than 2, and does his bedtime starting at 10:30. In a way it makes planning time with friends a bit easier since we don’t have to be confined to our apartment by 7 every night (like at home), but I am sure that people think I’m nuts.

    So ughmn, yeah. Bad Mamma.

      Are you kidding me??? GREAT mama. You braved an international flight, are exposing your kid to his extended family and honest-to-goodness culture, and you’re rolling with things. Way to go…you’re braver than me. The East coast is the limit of my current sphere. 🙂
