#sol22 March 28 Before That…

Slice of LIfe
Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge! I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by!

My 12-year-old is waiting for me to finish writing so we can watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Somehow, my 15-year-old is in the driveway with his dad getting a pre-driving driving lesson.
“In just a few months I’ll be able to actually drive,” he said.

Before that, I was at Home Goods, missing my daughter.
“I had to call my daughter who is away at school to ask her about having these pillows together!” I told the associate when she complimented the dining room chair pillows I had picked out.

Before that, I had indeed been Facetiming my daughter. She was at dinner, but answered the phone anyway and helped me decide on a few things.
“Why do you have to go to college anyway?” I asked her. “Shouldn’t you live here so you can go to Home Goods with me?”

Before that, I’m pretty sure, My kids were babies.

  1. RIght? As in, you blink and WOW. There we are.

    I love how you mixed the ordinary events of looking for pillows, catching favorite TV shows with the deeper pull of your daughter going off to college. For myself, it seems like that push-pull is always an undercurrent. BEAUTIFUL post.

    Also? It wasn’t until I met you last week that I made the connection between your name and your blog’s name. How freakin’ clever is THAT!? (And how oblivious was I before?)

    1. hahaha! Yes – I am actually super in love with my blog’s name! 🙂 Thanks for noticing!

      Also, thanks for the comments – I agree, the push-pull is there… and it’s just all so weird to have them growing up… 😦

  2. Mine are much, much older than yours and I’ve pretty much forgotten how they were as babies, it’s so sad. I love the way you’ve written this post and expressed all the bonds of love and family ties and how it passes in a flash!
