I watched these smart, patient mothers try to navigate a lunch out together with their combined five children. The children ate, the mothers didn’t have time. The kids enjoyed the outing; the mothers tried their best to keep everyone safe and happy, as they smiled reservedly at each other. The moms wanted some conversation, but maybe it will have to wait until a nap-time phone call.
Whatever their husbands were doing at work was nowhere as difficult as this outing to the mall. Our heroines.
