Have you ever noticed that you are more willing to do things you wouldn't have been caught dead doing before having kids? I am so there right now. Izzy and I were out and about most of the morning. I had to take her to the pediatrician for a wellness checkup and then run errands afterwards. Towards the end of our trip we were waiting at the red light around lunch time. Izzy was getting a little fussy so I broke out singing "The Itsy Bitsy Spider". She loves that song and will usually join in with me. I also get into the hand motions and sway side to side to get her involved in the song without much thought to how I look doing it.
While singing I glanced over to my left and find myself looking straight into the eyes of the passenger in the next car... laughing hysterically. I didn't think I looked THAT bad but I'm sure I either looked crazy or good for a chuckle. This guy, however, was laughing hysterically. I'll admit, I felt a twinge of heat rushing to my cheeks. After a second I thought WTH. Izzy's happy again, I avoided a blow up and I made someone else's day better with a laugh.
So if you're driving along minding your own business and just happen to see a woman singing, dancing or generally making a fool of herself. That woman probably has a child or two in the backseat that she's trying to keep entertained for the remained of the car ride. So be kind and snicker looking the other way. Thank you and have a nice day. That is all.
