Today was the wettest day in San Francisco since 2014!
Remember how I mentioned my friends and I did a white elephant gift exchange and we all gave one person a hard time for contributing an umbrella for his gift? We were all eating our words this morning! Hahahahaha!
Many years ago there was a popular book called Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. Its theme was about centering your adult values around the same basic things you learn as a kid like play fair and don't hurt others and put things back where you found them. I've always loved the book, especially a chapter about dropping crayon bombs from the sky :) Read it - it's really easy to get through.
That book was the inspiration for this post which is all about the things I've learned from my kiddos over the years. Just like I said in yesterday's smatterings, we can learn a lot from the generations before us. In that same regard, we can also learn a lot from the youngest generation...little people who see things through unjaded eyes and with loads of curiosity. Even if you aren't a parent or want kids, I still think everyone should spend a little time with them to appreciate what they can teach us.
Here are my top ten things I've learned from my own little fellas:
I was pretty happy to get these glasses this week which I'm going to use for running only (otherwise they'll get all scratched or lost). They were only $12 on Amazon and what I love most, and was my only requirement for a pair besides UV protection, was that they stay on my face when I sweat! These have really tight screws so the arms of the glasses stay firmly against your head. I have no idea why they send you a glasses case that feels more expensive than the actual glasses. I never keep my sunglasses cases, do you?
