Today could've been any ordinary day. In fact, it sort of felt like one except that I got up earlier than I normally would by choice. It was foggy and gray, kind of a bright gray, though, really. And cool. 55 degrees cool. Ordinary days have been summer days with sunshine, warm breezes, and new tomatoes.
Today could've been any ordinary day. Ordinary days are ones where I'm a mom to three little tow-headed ducklings that follow me dutifully throughout the day. Or one in which I'm helping elementary kids with cool science projects or maybe dealing with all the drama that comes with the middle school ages. Today is NOT ordinary … because, starting today, I am now the mom of all high schoolers and college age kids.
That is NOT ordinary. Not in MY book anyway.
And apparently, not in Aly's either!
Oh … she was just kidding!
Aly starts her high school years today as a Freshman … and darn cute one at that! She shares her 1st period Drama class with her brother, a junior. How cool is that? And it shouldn't be much different than what we watch them do day in and day out around here! They crack me up and bring me to tears all at the same time!!
As for Mom … I'll speak for myself to say that I might need some chocolate therapy. Yes, that's it. That is how to turn this 'not ordinary' day into a very comfortable, ordinary one.
(I think I have a choice to make now … will it be a dark chocolate square? Will it be a chocolate protein shake? Or will it be BOTH?! I think I see the sun peeking through already!)
