Do you ever drive the long way home, just because the kids are in their car seats, quiet, content to look out the window, unable to make a mess, not asking for anything and giving you time to think about something or nothing at all? Today it took twenty minutes to drive home from the day care which is 2 miles from my house. Up and down Burnet and Lamar. Completing a few complete circles. Sparkles started to catch on, though, and ask where we were going. I won’t be able to use this trick for long. For today, I enjoyed the long way home.
