My husband has been working long hours at his new job, which means I have been doing just about everything with both kids in tow.
Last night I had a committee meeting at their school. While I was in the library, they were to sit across the hall in the music room and read or play some handheld games. They’ve done this a few times before, but for some reason my son was really restless last night.
After coming in and interrupting us over and over, I finally sat him down in the chair next to me, gave him a pen and told him to draw some pictures in my notebook.
After a few minutes, I looked down to see him happily sketching. He looked up at me and said, “It’s a picture of you.”
I nodded. Then to further keep him busy I whispered, “You could make my hair longer or write my name on my shirt”.
Which explains why I got home from my meeting to find my white, hoodie sweatshirt now has the word “Mom” written on the sleeve.
