It was passed the time the kids should have been off the bus and in the door.
I quick stepped out to the top of the driveway – still no sign of them.
Crouching to peer under the hanging apple tree branches I double checked- nope, no kids.
Jumping up I ran back into the house pulled out my hidden cookie and sat down.
And as I enjoyed my last five minutes of quiet I thought to myself, “Yup. This is it. I’ve pretty much hit the pinnacle of motherhood and the stereotype of a stay at home mom all in one fell swoop. Good job mama, good job.”
