As Ella is approaching the tween years, I bought her a book about feelings since things will start changing for her. I placed it on the kitchen counter as I poured a glass of wine. I went to pick the book up again and while doing so, I accidentally knocked over my glass and the wine spilled all over the book. Of course this is also the exact moment that Adam walks into the room. “Babe! What are you doing?” he yells. Well, gee, besides the obvious of fumbling around to get paper towels before the book got totally soaked - Adam follows up his stupid question with “oh that's great…give her a book about feelings and it smells like wine.” This actually sounded fine to me – wine helps me deal with my feelings – not a bad thing to learn early. Ha!
