Me: I’m just so over everything. Let’s move.
T: Move where?
Me: Well, where do you want to move to?
Me: Alaska is boring. There is nothing to do.
T: We can hunt moose
Me: I think they are a protected species, we can’t hunt moose.
T: Did I say we were doing it legally?!?
Yup, that’s my kid!
I finally got the picture back from Senior Night, when I got the privilege of walking Mr. T across the field. It was pretty awesome!
You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow, they’ll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift. Breath and notice. Smell and touch them; study their faces and little feet and pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, mama. It will be over before you know. -Jen Hatmaker.
