Late again.
Missed the school bus.
I grab the keys.
He grabs a banana.

Can’t find his boots.
Where are your boots!?
Think. Think. Think harder.

No time to waste.
Just get in the car. Hurry.
Wait! Put on your hat
or you’ll catch a cold.
Why did I say that?
That’s not even true.

Back out, back down,
close the garage door.
Forward gear.
Moving forward.
Moving on.

Deep breaths.
Happy thoughts.
Holy rainbow, kiddo!
We watch the sky
all the way to school.
I’m so glad you missed the bus.
