the day…

8 May

::

today was a 6am morning. we don’t have many of those, thank goodness…

and so by 7 i had lost my temper once already…

by 9 i was dressed and feeling like a whole day should have passed…

by 10 i was asleep in e’s play tipi. she was pretending it was a van, so i got in and lay down. then she pretended it was a restaurant. ‘does this restaurant have any blankets?’ i asked. sure enough, it did. it’s full of pillows in there and not such a bad place for a snooze…

by noon we had baked muffins and were outside after several days of rain. the dandelions are starting and i looked up how much a weed torch costs…

by 4 i had stitched two new dolls, slammed a door (because that’s what i do when i get upset. i know it won’t help, but it’s sort of the closest you can get sometimes, you know?), and packed up L for a thrift trip and walk downtown…

by 7 we had finished our first kinder soccer practice as ‘coaches’…

by 9 both kids were asleep and we high fived and drank a manhattan (t) and chamomile tea (me)…

okay kids, let’s sleep in tomorrow.
