The Mommy shuttle service was the easiest part of the day. There was Baseball practice, the Middle school dance, and swim lessons to get the kids to on time. But these are the things that bring me joy (frustration at times). It’s seeing YaYa’s face when he showed me the ribbon he had just earning in swimming. The ribbin shows successful completion of the required skills and he is able to move up a level. He was really happy. Then BoBo, the Prince Charming of the house these days, told me that he has a new girl friend. ?She?s so pretty Mom,? he said with a dreamy tone in his voice. I have never heard this tone before.
The Mommy van returned from all the running around just in time. We wouldn’t want it to turn into a pumpkin out on the roads. With my shuttling done, and the floor freshly mopped, I have a few minutes to daydream about sunny days and long runs. Oh, but not yet…There is work to do. I have the baseball pants in the washing machine. If I stay up until the load finishes, I can put them into the dryer before going to bed. Then they will be dry by Little League Opening Ceremonies. Talk about last minute; it?s not usually this bad.
The morning tomorrow was supposed to be spent out bike riding but with all of the rain fall, I cancelled my planned (metric) century. The ride is called the Cinderella Classic and I have ridden it a few times. It is such a blast. I just had TOO many reasons urging me to let is pass this year. On the other hand, I am having my own Cinderella experience right in the comfort of my own home.
