Warp Speed

I wish that someone had filled me in on how, when my child starts school, my lazy little life would explode into a rythem that includes nasty little surprises such as Waking Up At The Crack of Dawn and Being Busy Until Midnight. If I haven't returned your call in the past month it is because I am either driving someone somewhere, going to a meeting, trying to sit down to work on my, you know.....JOB and make actual dollars that omg NEED, cooking something, juggling daycare, taking someone to the ER or figuring out my coffee pot as there is NO TIME to stop at Starbucks. Really? Have I really gotten too busy for drive-thru coffee? This is taking a major toll on my nap schedule.

Ruby became shockingly ill on Friday. Ridiculously high fever, rash and became lethargic within an hour. I realized while driving as fast as my minivan that I swore I would never drive would go, that I have what it takes to keep small people alive. With the help of many many friends. And coffee. And bi-weekly therapy.

It was always a mystery how moms seemed to have boundless energy and know how to do everything for everyone and I have begun to unlock the secret: They fake it. I am faking it, but I am doing it. Also, I do not shower very often.

How's the little one?? HOpe you're managing- when kids get sick we go into warp speed auto pilot mode and it's tough when you come back down from that--
