I Noticed Something About Parenting Today

I'm at Caribou today and there is a women here with her 4-6 year old daughter. Cute right? Except the fact that mom is sitting at a table flipping through newspaper ads listening to her iPod while the daughter kicks her little feet and stares off into space.

Seriously lady, is your music that important?

All of which convicts me. How many times have I ignored my kids for TV show or a book, or God-forgive me, a blog post? Ouch!
