There are parts of Kate Gosselin’s life that I can relate to. Unfortunately, it’s not the $75k-per-episode part of her life. A few weeks back, she was talking about how things were different being a single mom, and she said that she was going to have to learn how to do some things herself now that Jon was gone. She didn’t want her lack of knowledge in a particular area to hold her back. Her example at the time was going camping and grilling. Two things that Jon usually handled. I can totally relate.
The first reason. Every stroller we have ever had for either of the kids, The Husband put together. I never had to do a thing. This one sat in the box taunting me. I knew I could totally put it together. It was just mind over matter.
As soon as she saw what I was up to, and that it was something for her, it was all she could do to stay off it. I knew once I opened the box and she spied what I was up to, it would take me twice as long to put the stroller together.
But the stroller now? Completely put together, fully functioning, by me. I’m quite proud of myself actually. The next step is to conquer the grill. After a mini lesson last weekend, I am confident I’m up for the challenge.
