Ordinary people drive car pools,
wrangle unruly socks and toddlers…
I am equipping explorers.
Ordinary people wipe noses,
pour cough syrup down unwilling throats…
I am fighting the good fight.
Ordinary people break up fights,
talk to teachers,
lecture about kindness and self control…
I am molding the future.
At least I am today.
Today is a good day.
Today is an adventure.
So here’s me, I’ve done all these ordinary things today, but they seem more profound and wonderful, since I’m leaving them all behind for 8 days. My and my favourite teen are heading out on a real adventure this afternoon, just us. And the entire city of New York. And my sisters family (cute nephews!!!!). What a great way to celebrate 13 – especially for my easy-to-parent girl, who gives up so much time and attention to the littles everyday.
