The swiffer can wait
It was a long and exhausting day at work. I picked you up from school, and just wanted to hurry through the evening routine. Snack, homework, watch a show, dinner, bath, bed.
There was laundry to put away, floors to mop, and did I mention how exhausted I was?
I plopped down on the couch to catch a break. You came up to me with those big brown eyes, and said “Mama, can we please go outside?”
Sigh. I had so much to do, but I know childhood waits for no one.
You embraced your inner Picasso.
I watched you leap through the air like a baby kangaroo. My, my, how you have grown in the last year.
We busted out the bubbles. I watched you all turn into a pack of ravenous wolves.
It. was. glorious.
