Mama’s Drinking Wine…

playing in dirt
Mama look. Look, Mama, look. Do you see it? Look. Look.

Because my children are full throttle into their new after school routine:

Step 1: Get yourself into a state of undress. Pants are optional, shirts are forbidden.

Step 2: Fill every container you can find with dirt, grass, and, today, a grub you discovered.

Step 4: Study the grub and insist Mama look at it for an extended period of time.

Step 5: Mama fills herself a generous portion of wine because you are now covered head to toe in dirt. And now you need a bath. And you HATE baths. In fact, you have sobbed during EVERY bath this week. Wine gives Mama hope that maybe tonight’s bath will be different. Wine makes Mama care just a little bit less when it’s not different at all.
