Mommy’s Day Off
Today Matt returns home from Oakland, after 4 1/2 weeks at trial. We’re excited to see him. Our 5-year-old has set out his newly lost tooth to show his dad while our 3-year-old practices his tackles against my legs. And I’ve made an appointment at a salon because his re-entry point into our family trips us up every time.
And so today we’ll decompress before we come together. What this past four weeks has taught me is that I can do it alone, but I don’t want to.
So while he takes our three children to breakfast, I’ll sit beneath a dryer with my hair in foils, reading a magazine, and drinking a cup of Caribou coffee. I want to feel whole again. Starting with my hair.
