Somehow We All Survived
Seems like a simple task.
That shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.
Everyday, except some days on the weekend.
This morning it was far from ordinary. It was a battle. With tears of anguish.
It was getting dressed. It was getting Braeden dressed. It was getting Braeden dressed who was sick, in pain and sleepy.
What shouldn’t take more than a few minutes, took nearly 30 minutes.
Tears, hitting, biting, fleeing the room screaming.
Exhausted, I nearly succumbed. Ready to bring him to school in pjs.
Then I found it. A bargaining tool. A Chewy granola bar.
That wasn’t enough. A small cup of juice followed.
Somehow we made it in the car with only a pair of shoeless feet.
Somehow we all survived.
Seems like a simple task. Hah!
