La Jolla Pannikin is our most beloved coffee shop. I have been a loyal patron for almost 4 years. Naturally, wishing to bring our child up the right way, Eisley can be found frequenting the wooden bird playground that doubles for outdoor furniture. The older people that come always think she’s a boy, probably I because in their time people made a show out of girl babies. They most likely didn’t wear navy blue clothing and no bows in their hair. But she is loved there just the same. Everyone knows her there. They’ve watched her grow even when she was more the size of a food baby than actual baby. Sometimes it’s funny to mark time that way. To look at something; a person or place and try to remember how much of your life it has seen. The moments that impacted us, big or small, are all kept there in a stand-still of time.
