The Complaining groin when it is time to get up for school,
Auguring between two sisters before the sun breaks.
Feet trudging down the driveway to meet the bus.
The half hearted wave from the tiny window.
Lone socks found under the couch,
Unmade beds carrying the match.
A green dinosaur attacking my bare foot.
The trip to the store to replace the empty box of fruit snacks.
Starting dinner, dishes, and laundry without a moment to relax.
Chasing down the dog when he decides to take himself for a walk.
Collapsing into a chair for a moments break.
The bursting of the door starting thanksgiving break.
