But, self-saboteur or not, I knew that Easter would be filled with all kinds of sweets, treats and meats, so best to get out and get a workout in while I could. I had a bit of a hangover from the wine the night before and the snacking (did you know Cheez-Its and Malbec make a lovely pairing?), and this fresh air would surely knock out the cobwebs.

My first "official" boyfriend, J.Z. (Those are his initials. Not Jay-Z, just to be clear) happened in 3rd or 4th grade. I believe we had been in the same class since Kindergarten, so the relationship was inevitable. He was also my BFF's boyfriend--he liked both of us, we both liked him, why make things messy? I believe she and I worked out a timeshare agreement ahead of time where we would, on alternating days, ignore him on the playground and blush furiously at the mention of his name. Also, once he gave us a broken Breyer horse statue to share. It was like a dream.

Well I was drunk! The day my mama! Got out of prison!This will make us all laugh at their silliness and the general inappropriateness of their behavior while it causes me to question my parenting skills (or lack thereof).

|At the park, 2005|
In Oklahoma, parks mean windy days, sometimes intense heat. It's hard to know what to expect, weather-wise.
When my kids were little, I would go to the park with a group of other moms and kids. We would travel in packs like a pride of lions--proud females with our offspring, a caravan of suburban nomads packed heavily with our sippy cups, diapers, wipes, bug spray, sunscreen, band-aids, graham crackers and grapes--always cut in half.
