They don't see me strollin'

I've talked about it ad naseum but there was one thing I wasn't prepared for when I started working closer to home. In fact it honestly had not even crossed my mind until I went out to lunch yesterday and they were everywhere.

They as in strollers.

With P being over 19 months old now I have grown accustomed to working. We have a routine, it works, heck I even have a side business. So being away from her is something I have grown used to (and often enjoy)! When I was in San Francisco I would see strollers all the time and it didn't phase me. But there is something about being in my town at all the places I go to post 5pm or on weekends that it suddenly felt like 100 strollers rolled over me.

I was envious of the mom who's kid was crying in Target at noon. I was envious of the group of ladies having a playdate. And while athletic clothes are not my go to - I was envious of all the elastic waistbands surrounding me. So.much.leisure.wear.

I really don't think the grass is greener on the other side. It's green where you water it. So tomorrow after I walk to work (and inevitably pass a stroller or two) I will say hello with a nod of my head and just know that all my bathroom breaks today will be nothing but bliss. Silver linings right?
Proof that the grass is greener where you water it. Like this empty lot above my house!


  1. Cheers to you working mama!! You are amazing!

  2. I feel so many of the same things, even more than three years in. Enjoy the kid-free bathroom and coffee breaks, mama ;)

  3. Love your attitude and this post so so much! Plus, your a funny gal with all your leisure wear talk. I haven't met an elastic waistband that I don't like!

  4. Love this post and can relate to so much! I do enjoy being able to use the restroom alone whenever I want to for 8+ hours during the day :)
