Today I took my kids to the park for the first time in a long time. I feel bad because the typical park to my kids is the equivalent to Disneyland to most other kids. It's as if they get out of the van and are in awe that Mommy actually took them to the park. As we arrived there was a mother with her two children leaving. I set Jason in his infant car seat on the ground and the mom commented to her young daughter, "Look at the baby." Then I pulled Sarah (2 1/2) out of our silver 12 passenger van and stood her on the grass next to Emily and the mom said, "Oh look, another baby." As I reached in the van for Wendy (16 months) I wondered to myself what she was going to say. As I placed Wendy next to Sarah at the same time Bradley jumped from the van she asked in amazement, "Are these all yours?" I said they were and she said, "I thought I was busy with two kids." I politely responded with, "I think a mother is busy no matter how many children she has."
