Juggling All The Balls

I'm in the parking lot at Trader Joe's (love T.J.'s) sitting in the still, that is my car without children, and I'm watching a mom, across the lot.

She's on her cell phone, head bent to her shoulder in order to keep the phone on her ear and not falling on the ground. Sunglasses slipping down her nose, sweat pants sliding down her hips. Her three year old is twirling, around and around, watching her skirt fly around her, while mom watches, making sure she is within her grasp, should she twirl to far away and into the path of a car. The toddler is on her hip- the opposite hip of the cell phone because the little one is crying, loudly. She balances all this while she bends over to pick up something that falls to the ground and then grabs a cart to enter the store.

Now, why aren't there more women executives?

Oh God, you saw me???

No. No sweat pants here and a twirling kid in a parking lot is a cause for me to FREAK OUT. Plus, I hate talking on cell phones. I know, I'm so old.
