I am becoming my mother.
When I was a kid, I never quite understood why my mom and I had to walk down every single aisle every single time we went to the grocery store.
Now I get it.
I take me son to the grocery store, not just to refill the fridge, but to grab some sanity while I’m there. He loves it, so I love it. We walk around the entire store talking about what we’re going to buy and what we’re going to make with what we buy.
We get to wander, not rush.
It’s a time for calm conversation.
It’s a time I already know I will miss.
