With the sudden introduction of Spring the girls have abandoned their winter boots, coats and mitts in favour of capris, tank tops and flip flops. I tell them "Girls, its only Spring!" but they don't care as they run past in a flurry of cotton candy perfume and Barbies.
I take a brief moment to watch as they play without a care, and I only wish that I could just play too - instead, my internal chore sargent barks orders:
clean the bathroom! sweep the floors! wash the dishes! do the laundry! pick up kid toys! dust all surfaces! make the beds! tidy, tidy, tidy! don't forget to look sexy for your husband!*SIGH*
Oh, to be a kid again!
