This week, I am THAT mom. I am driving up to the school after the bell has rung. Again. I am there at pickup to wait in the line, maybe half of the school week. I was so late one day, my children started their homework in a classroom. Yup, that was me creeping onto the school grounds as if there were any parents actually left to see me.

In between two to three school runs a day, this particular week we added in a weeknight meeting for myself, an acrobatics class, a soccer game, a Cub Scouts meeting, a Girl Scout meeting, a folklorico practice, a haircut for myself and a little work here and there as I narrowly make my deadlines.
