It’s summer break already and that means more Mom-time for the kids,… and a few other things. But if there’s more Mom-time for the kids, we all know what there is more of for Mom. These things come together and equal more spending-money-time combined with less work-time. This can’t be without consequence.
I’m thinking stress, memory-makers, lots of kissing marshmellow-cheeks and tears to show. Always tears. The kids cry of course but if I do, its all,
Mom! Oh NO! Mom! Stop crying! Agh. I can’t stand it when you do that!
Lots of exclamation points are involved. I’m thinking this summer will have some of that because some days are stressful and painful. Others are just too beautiful to leave unstained with tears to sign my name by. Get ready kids!
Tonight, this is what I have.
I am licking my finger and turning a page. I feel the book as the page slowly fights the air to pass over. I haven’t seen the other side yet but the way the page lifts up and toward me, I know that this part is significant in itself. Lick my finger, press it down and sweep up. Up and passing over, just. The page is turning and so are we.
