How to start your day...Griffen style.

Are you guys watching for the bus or playing with the puppy?
Kids play with puppy.
Is that the bus?!?!?
Kids mosey to the door
IT IS!!
Kids frantically run out the door.
Kid runs back for umbrella.
Other kid runs back for lunch and back pack.
Puppy runs out the door.
Mom runs out the door, no shoes.
It's wet. It's rainy.
Paper lunch sack breaks in the middle of the cul-de-sac...the wet, rainy cul-de-sac.
Kid yells from bus steps...she forgot her backpack.
Bus driver waits.
Mom runs inside, no contacts, searching for a backpack in the dark.
No findy.
Bus driver waits.
Mom grabs un-cool unicorn lunch box to re-pack lunch in the road.
Still barefoot. Wet gravel hurts cold toes.
Bus driver waits.
Mom runs lunch onto bus. She'll bring the backpack to the school.
Phew.
All that before 7:00am!

And...
Little had her friend over for a play date.
She threw up right after her friend left.

Blessings counted:
Good man for a bus driver.

This day will come to an end.

Your post lunch activity was a lot like our post midnight activity- cleaning up the youngest's barf. I went into their room to take Eli potty, and there was this odd sour smell. Dang it.

Believe or not, the day will come when you wish you could pack a lunch or see a kid off to school or even not mind cleaning up a little throat debris. You are a great mom. I could have learned a few lessons from you.

Mom's right, you're a good mommy.
