So yesterday was kind of a crappy day. We are having some trouble with E's school. They think he's really smart but they want him to talk to the other kids more (he tends to talk to the teachers instead). Also, he was overtired so he was throwing tantrums about everything (out of character). To top it off, I have a 2-year-old who sometimes throws tantrums too (though now she is peacefully sleeping).

So today I got an almond danish pastry at Trader Joe's and had a giggly conversation on FB with a college friend about her high school crush. That is one of the sad parts of being an "adult" - no more crazy crushes. The pastry and the conversation were both fun, though.

Note: I put "adult" in quotes even though I am (gulp, gasp, yuck) 38...

It never changes, Bearette. I'm in my sixties and I still miss crushes and giggling with girlfriends. I remember my great aunt, when I was a teen, saying "I'm 82 years old, but I still feel like I'm 18".

I guess we are all teenagers inside :) In some ways...

Yes, if we are young at heart. That's the best way to be.

I miss crushes too. Lots of them in London Gardens, though. Sorry about the bad day but glad the giggly convo & almond pastry were so good. I think prodigies like yours probably often speak to "adults" rather than children

That's a nice way of looking at it - thank you :)
