Nachos and Disappointment

We’re hip deep.


It’s a crush.


My friend and I were talking. She has a girl the same age as mine, who has a crush, too.  Also, on a boy so nice it makes us sad because he didn’t show up about two years from now.


So this other mom and I, we’re quietly watching from the sidelines with our nachos and disappointment.


Showing up too soon.

Being all nice and stuff.

Forcing us into sports spectator analogies.

Like they’ve always done.











  1. I am still in the “I hope my kids think the opposite sex have cooties” forever mode. So far so good. The oldest are 13 and 11, so my time is limited.

I love it when you sass me. Please leave a comment.
