I Think I Hear Banjos

Oh my gosh, I'm such a loser mom sometimes.

I just shooed Joel (10) onto the bus carrying his socks and shoes. Nice! And not only that - I had to stand outside and have the bus wait so he could run and get said socks and shoes! The bus driver looked none too happy with me.

The good news is - it's because we were having a fine, relaxing morning and just lost track of time.

But, oh, the sight of my son getting on the bus barefoot. Did I go to sleep and wake up in Arkansas?

Disclaimer: In no way was that last comment meant to offend those of you who live in Arkansas, have relatives in Arkansas, like vacationing in Arkansas, or simply think Arkansas didn't deserve that jab. I'm sure Arkansas is a fine place to reside and believe in the equality of all states. For crying out loud, I live in Indiana.


  1. If this is the worst part of the bus driver's day, I think s/he is doing pretty well! :)

  2. Shoes and socks are soooooo over rated!

    Glad to hear your morning was going well with Joel. ;)
