I’m Glad

Pack up the stuff on Daniel’s bed,

Fill his water bottle, make peanut butter sandwich,

Pick up his teammate

Go to the high school to get Daniel who stayed after to watch cool miniseries for extra credit in AP history, no we didn’t discuss which door to pick up at.

Drive around the school twice finally get him

Avoid construction on state street,

Arrive at practice exactly on the hour,

Run a few errands,

Come back to soccer field

Retrieve Daniel,

Don’t watch as he changes from soccer practice clothes to soccer ref uniform,

Drive him about a quarter of a mile,

Leave him to ref a game,

Come back, pick him up with dinner in a bowl,

Deliver him to the church for scouts.

Wonder how on earth I ever did this with 7 kids that needed me.

Tell him I’m glad I don’t have a life so he can have one.

Really mean that,

Be very glad that I’m a mom.

    I’m glad that you are a grandma too, without a busy life.
