It took us 40 minutes to leave school today. I forgot to set my timer. I talked to all the parents. Roozle conquered her fear of going the wrong way up the slide. There was sun. I only wore one jacket instead of two. How could we leave?
When I finally convinced her to go, she found this hydrant and climbed it for another 15 minutes. I guess she was kidding when she said she’s done with hydrant climbing. Or maybe it was the only thing left to climb on the way to the car. And maybe we needed the extra sun. We always need extra sun.
