If you don't have children you might not understand why moms have operate on "ish" time. Let me explain . . . or rather let Jordis explain. This was on a day where we did not have to be somewhere at a certain time because we were running an errand or going clubbin' or something. So I let Jordis lead the way on our exit and I didn't rush her. Here's how it went down:
1. Slowly climb into the car seat while managing a bag of cereal, a sippy cup, an asymmetrial hairdo (by choice), and the well-loved tie to her robe.
2. "Wait, mom, mom, mom. I need my robe tie. No mom, no mom. Don't strap me in. I need to do this. I need to do somefing."
3. She carefully reaches up to the grab handle and weaves her robe tie through it. This takes several minutes of course.
5. "Hey mom. Look at dis!"
6. And check this out.
7. Nothing more satisfying then a good robe tie workout in the car.
And that, my friends, is why moms run on "ish" time. I wish I could let my kids play with their robe ties as we get in the car every day, but sometimes we do have to be somewhere. One day I will chronicle trying to get three kids to get their socks and shoes on to get in the car because that tends to be quite an ordeal . . .
