What I've learned from watching Parenthood

I've learned to stand in doorways and watch.


Adam and Kristina are really good at this.

I watch Parenthood here and there while Ed naps and I do computer work. I just started season 3. It somehow feels like a more responsible decision than Real Housewives (and also we don't have cable and it's free on Netflix and Real Housewives isn't waaah). It's pretty great and has cemented my desires to have a whole crop of kids. When people ask me how many kids I'd like to have, my answer has always been "A dining room table full" and that is precisely what they have in Parenthood. (This point is up for debate in my family and I'm okay with that. Ed is the bomb and we are so blessed but more tiny little bombs would be awesome.)

So Adam and Kristina do the whole stand-in-the-doorway-and-look-dreamily-at-your-kids thing and I'm going to adopt this into my regular routine. Seems like a good way to take parenting snapshots.



Aaaaand lesson learned the hard way that you should not Google search Parenthood Kristina... if you are a season behind because a crap storm of words follow that pretty much make my head spin. Uuuuuuuugh.



A real-life Parenthood moment captured today:


Watching him play with his alphabet train. His fave. And he's soooo smart. Did I mention that he's so smart?

I didn't get as long as Adam and Kristina get - they have enough time for the eyes to get glazy. This kid allows me seconds before swooping in for a head hug. I'll take it!
