Brushing Helena’s hair, I feel, is one of the crowning achievements of our parenting. What used to be a screaming session at the mere thought gradually evolved into a sprint around the house and now a resigned “ok”. We’re off to school!
We get in the car and I fill out this morning’s COVID screening tool. No symptoms, because this kid’s ready to face the day.
A great song plays while we drive; both Helena and I are keeping beat. It’s cold out, but much more mild than yesterday. Good start to the day.
