More complications

Warning: Icky stuff ahead. Got up to take Boy #2 to school today. Since the weather has been so nice lately (as in, we’ve skipped spring and moved directly into summer) I thought I’d walk in the mornings, especially on the days when I have to pick him up after play practice. So I put…
