One thing having kids has taught me (other than kids are gross) is life is much better if you just delight in the little things. Everytime we give Sammy and Declan a sippy cup with water in it they shake it and laugh and laugh. They just love seeing/feeling the water slosh about.
Yesterday I did something I haven’t been able to do in months: I went into an actual bookstore and browsed for books (that I didn’t need, and yet I bought 4).
It was delightful, though I didn’t laugh and laugh because I figured that would have creeped everyone else out.
I look forward to going into a bookstore without a mask and without counting all the customers and comparing that to the number listed on the door as the number of people allowed in at the same time (the actual number was a little higher than the sign said it should be. Tsk, tsk).
