I am recovering from a book club meeting I hosted last night. After years of attending one with former co-workers in San Francisco, another mom at Ari’s school and I started a trashy one at home. We read books like the Twilight series and Alisa Valdes’s Make Him Look Good — it’s such guilty pleasure that I should not even announce it in public — and play games wee into the night.
Last night we weren’t up too late, 9:30 p.m., playing Liverpool Rummy, but the kids were begging to go home. But hey, moms have to have fun, too! What do you do for fun?
In other news: I spotted this article by Laurie Puhn over the Expecting Words blog about overprotective husbands during pregnancy. These guys monitor everything their wives eat and drink. Thankfully, my husband is my polar opposite in this regard. I am the worrier and he is the mellow one, which has helped throughout pregnancy and the trenches of parenthood. While I want to rush my kids to the emergency room for every fall and illness, he is the one that makes me pause and admit things aren’t that bad. Are you or your spouse worriers?
