I woke up and looked at the time. Cary was oversleeping, but I didn’t wake her. I am relinquishing some of my motherly duties. And those of the helpful roommate.
I should get up to take Caleb to daycare. He was getting dressed when I yelled, “Text daycare and tell her he’s sick and staying home. Yes, that’s a lie.
Caleb cried out: “I’m not sick.”
Cary: “Don’t you want to stay home with Grammy?”
Cary: “Do you want to go to daycare?”
Cary: “Do you want to stay home with Grammy?”
Caleb: “Stay home.”
I’d like to tell you that I just wanted to spend the day with my grandson. But the truth is selfish. I just didn’t want to get out of bed and go out in the morning chill. The drive each morning and evening has become longer and longer. And I was feeling lazy on this Tuesday morning.
