What Does Mom Do All Day - Afternoon

In a previous article, I started answering the question “What Mom Does All Day?”. If you haven’t read it, you can access it at the link below. Now, we will continue on with mom’s afternoon.

She writes an article to be published next week (sometimes it takes hours to write). She leaves dirty dishes in her sink. She walks to a meeting (has to get the exercise in somehow) at a nearby coffee shop to discuss a community collaboration project. She spends an hour at the meeting.

She stops at friends to pick up supplies for garden club. She chats a bit. She receives a call about another great project to help at-risk children and teens. She talks on the phone while finishing the quinoa and caper salad.

She begins to make the squash soup for garden club. She roasts, chops, sautes, mixes, blends, and purees. She boils orzo for the Friday night dinner. She makes a white bean and turnip puree. It is a busy cooking day. She makes a haircut appointment. She calls her mom.

She glances at clock and sees she is running out of time before school lets out. She brings the soup to school for garden club. She is surprised when a friends tells her they are meeting in the library.She had forgotten about the book fair meeting.

She is excited to be involved in the book fair. She leaves the book fair meeting to help with garden club. The school bell rings, and her children come to garden club. She attempts to triage her children as garden club begins. Middle school student helps with garden club to earn community service hours. Other children will wait for her during garden club and work on their homework.

She leaves as soon as garden club is over to take a child for his haircut. Child is not happy during haircut. He never is. She has her “too bad” attitude on. Haircut is a draining 30 minutes. She and hair stylist need a drink - if only she drank.

She gets the children ice cream after the haircut. Ice cream is a good substitute for a drink. She drives home. She drops off two children and picks up one child. She takes middle school student to his haircut appointment at grown-up shop around the corner. She takes daughter with her.

She colors with daughter while son gets haircut. She drives home. She arranges a quick dinner for her children. She cleans up her mess from earlier while her children eat. She piles three children back into the car. She takes them to Michael’s in search of a wallaby - or even a kangaroo - for a class project. She strikes out.

She takes them to the dollar store. She buys a mug for the third grade mug exchange. She goes next door to Toys R Us. She looks down every aisle for a wallaby. She finds some possibilities. Child is not happy. She leaves the store unsuccessful. She drives to Barnes and Noble. The sun is starting to set.
