Yesterday I was walking on the shady side of the street in Montrose and happened upon a couple who have a baby, they also started a cool new project called Precious Preemie Project. “Precious Preemie Project donates hand-made knitted hats to premature babies in neonatal intensive care units.
The lovely couple and I were laughing and having a good time learning about each other’s business endeavors. I walked away, once again, loving how different being a business woman/artist/stay at home mom who works sometimes, what the hell am I? I don’t know but I like it.
Then today I drug my two little ones to a Starbucks and plopped them in their double Bob stroller. Only to find it wouldn’t fit through the bathroom door.
I was waiting for the right stranger to leave my kids with so I could run into the bathroom quickly. A woman leaned over and asked my daughter why she had tears in her eyes.
Bingo. “I’m sorry this is nuts but can you watch my kids while I run into the restroom?”
“You got it mama, relax, go.”
When I returned she laughed and said, “You know I’m actually a babysitter,” and she handed me her card.
I asked her if I could share it on my site, she said yes, so here is the kind stranger who helped me today. She works primarily on the East side.
When I stayed in that fancy shmanzy hotel earlier this week, I watched business men and some women, dressed nicely eating off of some nice breakfast buffet about to have a meeting.
Part of me wants that. But the bigger part of me loves having impromptu meetings with fellow moms/artist with stains on my shirt, my hair in a bun and quickly bursting with ideas/exchanges before my child or theirs needs attention.
