it’s blizzard time

11 . January . 2011

we’re going to sleep
with our fingers-crossed
but things are looking
out there
for a snow day tomorrow.

come on, winter sky,
you can do it.

b grated all of the cheese
for dinner by herself.

tacos a la betsy.

and as caroline gently
played her piano pieces,
i quietly pulled my trusty-dusty
‘the educated child’
off her top shelf
and reread ch. 10
from start to finish,
a whispered pep talk
to my mother-of-a-sixth-grade-boy’s heart.

[‘helping your child succeed in school’
which includes teaching good study habits,
helping your child with homework,
staying on top of hwk, etc.
thanks, mr. bennett]
