It was an exceptional day at the park today. A complete stranger asked me if Emily was my sister. My SISTER! Not only am I her mother, but in some circles, I’m probably old enough to be her grandmother. Holy smokes, I took that as a huge compliment! I thanked her for the kind thought, but explained that no, I’m her mother.
How cool was that? It was better than getting carded! (Never you mind that this stranger was a little girl in the 1st grade.)
