Just Another Manic Sunday

Complicated Car Pooling for 5th Grade Book Club

It’s just another manic Sunday! Do you remember the time before kids when Sunday was a day you could spend in bed? Sunday, FunDay, Don’t Have to Run Day? Not when you become a mom!!! I really wanted to take PickyKidPix‘s book club of 5 girls to meet author and illustrator Grace Lin at a literacy event nearby.

The stars aligned when the swim meet for two of the girls was a home meet and all the girls were able to make most of the it, but not without a mad scramble. Thankfully, one of the moms is excellent at logistics and figured out this incredibly complex schedule to get everyone where they need to go.

It was worth it! The girls loved meeting Grace Lin and it was a great book club meeting!

Six o’clock already
I was just in the middle of a dream
I was kissin’ Valentino
By a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can’t be late
‘Cause then I guess I just won’t get paid
These are the days
When you wish your bed was already made

It’s just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
‘Cause that’s my funday
My I don’t have to runday
It’s just another manic Monday

No, Bangles. You don’t want our Sunday today!  Read more…
