Y'all know that I have three kids, ages 5, 3, and 11 months. Recently we were at a nearby park because I couldn't take it any longer with all of us at home. I struck up a conversation with another mom who brought a young baby (6 months old) to the swings where Dallas and I were hanging out. Boy! What is it about the park and moms?
I got the whole life story from this mom, including how she met her husband, what she does for a living, what they plan to do about work and childcare, and details about all her infertility struggles and her IVF treatments. I'm opposed to IVF but it was not the time to get into it with this person I don't even know. (Nor is it the place here.) When she asked, I told her my husband works in "business services" and that seemed to appease her. Better than my usual preferred response of "garbage collector."
What is it about the park? It's like a mommy confessional. This is not the first time this has happened to me, either.
