I was going to post photos of my son's first train ride (10 days ago - yes, am a little behind) but that will have to wait for daddy
And since I'm speaking of work, I once made inquiries into our local DS chapter about a company grant but they assured me they are already recipients and that some other parents work there too. I mean it's a BIG company, but how cool would that be? Especially since I seem to be striking out in the finding-similar-moms -for-playdates field (partly through my own lack of effort but I'm hoping school in the fall makes it a mite easier).
And last... I failed. I went to a lunch with a bunch of co-workers and one used the R-word. Not someone I know well. Said in the midst of light hearted conversation. The witty crushing speech that I occasionally practice in my head? Was abandoned. Instead I simply said "Really? Do you have to use THAT word?" Granted it was said with tone, but not really the grand defining moment I'd envisioned. It took the guy a minute to figure out what the hell I was talking about, he apologised, and it was barely a blip. The thing about my witty crushing speech is that it's not really appropriate for the light conversations in which people would be most likely to use it. So I need a new comment. One that I'll actually use, and yet has a bit more oomph than the verbal equivalent of "knock it off". Any bits of genius y'all want to share?
