Last week, I had an epiphany while driving my children to school one morning. My husband normally drops our three sons off each day, but he was out of town. And my oldest son (age 12) is wonderful and very Type A. I wonder where he gets that from?
He likes to arrive at least half an hour before school begins. And this particular morning, that wasn’t happening. They wouldn’t be late, but early wasn’t in the picture either. While finishing up some much needed tasks before leaving the house, I heard the following:
Sigh. “When are we leaving mom?” “Soon,” I responded. I heard another one. Sigh. “What time is it?” he asked. “Almost time to go,” I responded. Finally, he let out another big sigh! Ok. That was it!
