Two Lollipops, Please

I usually ask for two lollipops, please.

Today, I wanted to be a kid again.

Today, I wanted to be responsibility-free.

Today, I didn’t want to worry about what to feed my family for dinner.

Today, I didn’t want to worry about whether my youngest was wearing his real underwear or his imaginary ones.

Today, I didn’t want to plan out my son’s school work plan.

Today, I didn’t want to organize and coordinate all I had on my plate.

Today, I asked for three lollipops, please, at the bank drive-thru lane.

One for my oldest. One for my youngest. One for me.

For just a few minutes I was responsibility-free.

My lollipop was yellow.

I’m attempting to take part in the “The Fifth Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge” through the month of March. The challenge is run by Two Writing Teachers.

    Yay for lollipops!

    I was being silly when I got my pertussis shot earlier this year, and asked if I got a lolly for being a good girl. The nurse chuckled and handed me one. Mine was green 🙂

    Love it! This cracked me up “Today, I didn’t want to worry about whether my youngest was wearing his real underwear or his imaginary ones.” especially since I had to inform my sister today that her 6 year old daughter was also wearing imaginary underwear.

    Make my sucker yellow! BTW-My preteen (read: hormonal) daughter wears imaginary deodorant these days. Must be something going around!
