Today, while driving home from a long first alone trip to the grocery with my two girls (we usually make it a family affair), I was paying more attention to the rear view mirror to make sure Laney's screams were simply those of "Let me outta here, woman" and not "something is majorly wrong here, woman." When I looked ahead, a yellow light that came up on me sooner than I expected quickly turned red, making me be a bit dramatic at the usual smooth stop. As the van bounced a bit from my braking, I heard the following statement from the back seat,
"Pay attention to what you're doing, momma!"
Thanks! Nothing like having a little "mom" around to remind me of the most obvious things that, although annoying, are still important to hear!
