Cool moms

Most moms are cooler.  This was abundantly clear in the last 24 hours.  I took the boys to visit some friends who've moved away. It was awesome.  Their new house is vast.  A mid century rambling rancher with a daylight basement on a big hillside lot:  holes to dig, rocks to climb, ice cream bars in the freezer, big views of mountains and sky.  Plus they have reptiles--a snake and a turtle.  AND a baby tarantula.   My sons kept acting uncharacteristically affectionate, coming up and slinging an arm around my neck--then laughing their heads off when I screamed upon seeing the snake peeking out of a sleeve.  I am deeply grateful that neither had much interest in the tarantula.
