"Salsa Dancing after 9pm?! I don’t think I can make it. AKA...I’m too tired and old to get ready for something that BEGINS at 10pm; plus I feel fat and don’t look cute in anything. And I probably will look ridiculous anyway. It’s been way too long."
3 years. It’s been at least 3 years since I’ve gone salsa dancing. I know that because my youngest son turns 3 in a few months and I haven’t danced since he was born. Or even when I was pregnant with him. I barely danced since having my first child.
But who cares? I mean moms aren’t supposed to be out late dancing anyway right? Depends, I say.
Do you feel like a toy volcano had a violent explosion in your house sometimes? How in the world do we contain all the legos, dinosaurs, teddy bears, puzzles, and trains when they just keep comin? Kids get gifts; month after month the piles grow, and they leave you with a limp after stepping on yet another toy left out on the floor.
