30 Tiny Moments: Day 3 (Coconut: Hippie Style)

I had intended on using the photo in the previous entry because it pretty much sums up MY feelings about today, but then I realized probably I should pick a more upbeat photo for my submission to this particular group.

(Lucky for you all, this is my blog and you get to see both photos right here.)

And then I spent about 30 minutes trying to find ways I could explain the positivity about my first-choice photo before realizing that, really? I could do better.

So I pulled out my fancy sun-dried organic coconut strips. They are delicious and I fully plan to shovel them in my mouth tonight after the kids go to sleep.

Know what’s fun? Taking a screaming toddler, shoving him into a shopping cart and pushing him around a store.

Know what’s more fun? When that store is hippie central and you are very likely to run into other parents who will shoot you dirty looks for the fact that you would MAKE your child SUFFER.

Know what’s even more fun? When some of those people might even know you – at least from local natural living e-mail groups. It would not be the first time I was recognized in public simply from other moms knowing my kids’ names.

Sure is my idea of a Grand Afternoon.

Lucky thing for me, this hippie store sells organic crackers I can buy to bribe my kids to shoosh already.
