A Sign of the Times

A sense of urgency while stuck in traffic, circa 2000: I’m late for a movie and I do NOT like missing the previews!

A sense of urgency while stuck in traffic, August 26, 2008: An 85% potty trained child saying “Mommy, I have to go poop RIGHT NOW,” a screaming, hungry infant and leaky boobs.

Oh, how the times have changed.


  1. Oh. my. word. Sounds like quite the ride! I remember a couple of similar times with Eva and Elisha (bringing me to tears). At least you can laugh…or maybe that’s just us laughing. Dear wonderful, patient Jen, may you have the best of days tomorrow.

  2. Oh, just to clarify, I wasn’t going to the movies with the kids. We were coming home from somewhere. I just remember being late for the movies was one of my biggest pet peeves back in the day.
