Today was the first day we’ve executed the new morning plan, the one where Mr. takes B to school while I head off to work. It was phenomenally weird to climb into my car, alone, and kiss the boys goodbye.
It was a lovely, overcast, slightly drippy morning. There was rain last night – B told me he heard it last night when he woke up, but didn’t hear it while he was asleep! – so everything was damp. In anticipation of this change in routine, I parked my car over by B’s school last night so that I could walk over that way with the boys and Miss Maya. On our walk, I realized for the first time that the trees are blooming! Spring is here! (How could I have missed this?) When I stopped to take pictures, B asked me if I missed spring, which I did. He told me everyone likes spring because “everything comes back.”
New, different, better than ever.
