My boy was tardy today. These last couple of weeks... It's been crazy and busy and exhausting. We're all falling into bed with lights out before 10pm and sleeping hard until the last minute we have to get up. So while we got up in a timely manner today, we just couldn't pull ourselves together in time to... well, be on time.
Darling Man headed off to work and I drove the Boy to school. As we sat at a long light the Boy said "I wish we had teleporter technology NOW. It would make getting to school so much easier."
I ran with it.
"What if the homeroom teacher had a button and when he pressed it at the time you were supposed to be at school, you all would appear in your chairs. Of course, you'd have to actually be ready when he pushed it. Can you imagine landing in your seat still in your jammies, brushing your teeth or eating breakfast?"
He started laughing. What a great way to start the day!
