overheard: son in bathroom, reading my journals
Sunday, July 8, 2012
"Mom, you've had that Pediatrics
in here a looooooong time," says 5 year old son in the bathroom, seeing my hard copy of the journal on the step stool, aka magazine rack.
"But you know what? I get a new one of those every
month in the mail," is my reply from the kitchen.
"Yeah but this
one's been here waaaaaaaaaaay too long," he persists.
Time to get reading? Move it to my bedside table? Get the dust off my stack of journals? Get an e-reader?(cross-posted previously at MothersinMedicine)
