Sack of Groceries

I'm a mom.


After a five year stint I've finally come to grips that most of what I do is for someone else. Today I happened to have an exceptionally over demanding resident in the house who drove the point right through my heart. He's five, I'll forgive him. Tomorrow will be a different day. No worries.


But what is a distraught mom to do? I, of course, did what any mom would resort to. I drank picked up my camera. I picked it up just for me. No worries about settings or completing an assignment. Or composition for someone else. Just for me.

"Dad, lay my blanket flat and put me in it like a grocery bag."
Funny thing. He'd saved up his pure joy for the end of the day. How's that for a sack of groceries?
