He’s Safe Mama

I was rushing to get out of the house.

Helping Cooper with his shoes and wrestling the baby into his jacket.

Filling up a bottle and grabbing snacks and drinks.

Making sure the diaper bag was stocked and that I looked halfway presentable.

You know, doing all of the things.

Cooper was nonverbally letting me know that he was going to bring all hundred of his treasures.

Sawyer was asking me for a bag because he wanted to bring his rollerblades to a place that didn’t allow rollerblades.

The baby was dumping Cheerios everywhere. And I mean everywhere. The dog was following behind eating them as he toddled. Crunch. Crunch. Giggle.

It was a night I tell ya.

I sent Sawyer to the car while I wrangled the rest.

When I got out there, Sawyer said…’mama, I walked Cooper out here. I held his hand and helped him into the car. And I buckled him. You don’t have to mama. I did it for you. He’s safe mom.’

Tears.

Lately, we’ve been fighting about homework and bedtimes and baths and talking back. But the way he brothers…

That’s how know I know I am raising him right.
