There’s nothing like standing outside in 99 degree heat speaking to a 4 year old — and taking her picture with her new camera — to give a bit of perspective.

I was so caught up in my thoughts about recommitting to the diet to lose an extra 5 pounds and how essential it is for me to be in the thinner side of normal and and and . . .

I really needed the 10 minute discussion with a neighbor’s child about flowers and snacks to remind me that I need to get a little out of my own head.

Thanks, neighbor kid!
