People Watching

I’m a people-watcher, and the best place to go people-watching is the community pool. I’ve been going to the pool to watch people about twice a week since the kids got out of school in May.

This week, among my finds, I saw a group of young moms with their tiny toddler and preschool-age kids, and I was thinking about how lucky those moms are to have each other. Later on, while Izzy and the kids and I gathered to have a snack break, I commented on the group of moms and we wondered out loud for a while how the group came together.

“All the kids are mostly the same age,” I reasoned. “I doubt they just all happen to be friends on their own. I bet they’re part of a mom’s club or something.”

“Or maybe their kids all go to the same preschool. That could totally be it…” one of us suggested.

We came up with three possibilities before our six-year-old, Aiden, cut into the conversation with, “But the real question is whether they have iPads and iPhones.”

Clearly, those are the all-important issues in our household right now.

    Aiden is too, too funny. Your photo reminds me of a day on our last vacation. We’re at lunch at a fun restaurant waiting for our order to come, and I’m people watching. When I turn my attention back to the table, I see that husband, son and daughter all have their cell phones out checking emails and texts. It’s a new world – and sometimes some have trouble unplugging.
