You see lots of scenes like this in Scandinavia, as mothers get 1 year of paid leave.

Your post yesterday about the sleep center (which I did not see until now) reminds me of a story about my son when he went to a sleep center to be evaluated overnight, hooked up to machines that recorded data, etc. The sleep center was in a medical office building complex near a large hospital in a commercial area.

In the middle of the night everyone in the sleep center was awoken by a guy banging on the door , then the windows, trying to get in. The employee called the police. The police came and took the guy away. They said that his explanation for his behavior was that he was trying to attend the Phoenix Open golf tournament, which was occurring that weekend about 5 miles away.

Yes, he was very drunk to not know the difference between a sleep center in the middle of the night and a golf tournament.

I like the new color scheme of your blog. Very autumnal!
It also looks like those Moms are having fun. It's nice that they have formed this little group. :)

I suppose that might be fun. Anything for an outing. MB

Oh I forgot to mention that I like your new header---several days ago, that is----but I miss the horses. MB

Nice scene, but I would merge the tables together.

A chance to share stories!

I like the balance of this shot; three nice portraits.

I've known young moms who've seen outings like these as sanity touchstones. Adult talk! Away from home! Woohoo!

Diapers and bread, I don't think so. Nice shot.

When I was a young mom we met a McDonalds.... ;)

A nice snooping image today, Lowell. I am a fan of Panera (and Starbucks). Both offer good food/coffee/snacks and a welcoming environment to meet with friends. Or to watch others meet with their friends.

Nice photo of young mothers getting out to say a few more words than just baby talk. :)
