Pancake breakfast!

January 30, 2010 at 11:14 am Leave a comment

We may not seem like the church-going types, but when news that the Baptist Church down the block was throwing a pancake breakfast for the community, we thought it would be an ideal way for us to get out and about, meet some of the neighbors, maybe elicit some sympathy. As the picture shows, our boys had great trouble making friends, and basically sat glued to their boosters, noses in syrup. Well…actually it wasn’t quite so bad. We had a nice time – chatted up the pastor, who has an MFA in fine art, and paid our community membership dues, so that now we can attend the monthly meeting without a dark cloud of guilt hovering overhead.

We are back into our systems with mama on home soil. But we are working, and working hard. It is a great joy and privilege to usher these small triplicates into the community of sensible creatures, but I’d be lying if I said it didn’t exact a toll. We are achy backs, tired eyes, aging knees and oil bills at times, but we are also carpet wrestles, 8 handed piano, chasing cats, flipping switches, so you more or less get what you pay for. There’s the Vanimal, pulling up the driveway with coffee and me loving wife. This moment, this one right now, feels deeply earned.
