Last weekend, a friend from the mom’s club invited us to go on a pirate cruise with her and her two little boys. As most of you know, I am a pirate fanatic, and that has transferred to Chloe. Oh, and I was that mother, following around my kid like the paparazzi. I felt really bad when I accidentally stepped in front of a grandmother taking pictures. I said, “Oops, I am so sorry!” and she said, “Yeah, I have A LOT of pictures of you.” I felt horrible! I was THAT mom. I sat down for the rest of cruise and made John take the pictures. Afterward, I talked to my friend and told her how bad I felt, because I really didn’t know I was being so obnoxious, and she said, “You weren’t bad, all those parents were just SITTING there. If they wanted better pictures, they could have gotten off their butts and taken them, too.” That made me feel better. Because, the only people who matter are the one you are going to see again, right? Sigh.
Anyway, here’ the link to the pictures.
