Every Friday Brie, from Capital Mom, posts a theme/topic and if you like you can join her by writing about a moment related to that theme/topic the following Monday. The theme for this week’s Monday Moment is Friendship.


Two friends, out cruisin’ in their brand-new ride. “Tell baby about what you see, that’s how she learns the words for things.”

Big sister obliges with a running commentary – what she sees, what she thinks, punctuated by the occasional nursery song. Little sister watches, hanging on every word, adding a squeal here and there. For interest.

I follow along behind, headphones shoved in my pocket.

Hanging on every word.
