Rolling out of bed, slipping on our swimsuits, eating breakfast on the way to the ocean. Skipping naps, going to the grocery store only when it was absolutely necessary. I think I bought my weight in marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate.
Now the routine is back. I dropped Addison off at school this morning and he did much better than he did last year.
I did not.
We walked him to his classroom, and he was off. I had Jack on my hip, and Anna's hand in mine and almost ran out of there.
I was sobbing. I just couldn't stop. It was dramatic.
Anna said, " Mama, stop making that thound (sound) just because Addison is in cool (school)! You are bein' adicyoulis (ridiculous.)"
I told her that I am who I am and no one should have to apologize for the way they are, or how they are feeling.
I just hope she doesn't throw that one in my face the next time she gives Jack or Addison a good smack and I force her to apologize.
