“Chopped celery. That’s what I’m driving to my son’s school today. Why? Because I don’t look in his folder. I missed that he needed to bring chopped celery to school today, and I have no idea why he needs it, but he does. So I’m driving it to him praying that he gets it on time.

I miss things.

My kids don’t always have clean socks.

We ate at Wendy’s last night.

I forget to RSVP to parties.

We never have cash when we need it.

My kid doesn’t always have his coat.

There might be Halloween candy in their lunches.

I sign without reading sometimes.

And I don’t always check my kids’ folders.

But… I love them. And I work dang hard for them. And I’m banking on the fact that 20 years from now, they won’t remember that their mom forgot the chopped celery. I am praying they remember how hard I fought for them everyday to have a good life… one where they know they are fiercely loved no matter what.”
