“I want a mustang! and a green car!” and other things I hear from the backseat while driving my kids around.

As any parent or guardian knows, one of the many job titles you have is that of “chauffeur” (unpaid chauffeur who has to provide extra services such as counseling, therapy, entertainment, referring, feeding, deliveries, etc. all while staying alert enough to transport your cargo safely from one destination to the next.) Since both my kiddos are still young, I honestly don’t have too much chauffeuring to do just yet. M has Montessori school 2x a week and O goes to Wobblers Story Time at the library 1x week. That is really it for events that I need to take them to other than random errands and doctors appointments. On the one hand, I’m thankful because I know the time in the car will just increase the older they get. But on the other hand, I look forward to those future journeys on the road and wouldn’t even mind more time now. It is so much fun to just take a moment and really listen to what they are up to as they are buckled into those little car seats in the back of my mini-van, throwing gold-fish crackers all over the place.

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since my last blog post. I’m happy to get those creative juices flowing again and fingers tappity-typing.
