It’s a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the birds are singing.

This morning, the Demigoddesses cheerfully left for the bus on time. When they kissed me goodbye they were clean, they were well fed, they were wearing shoes. They each had their homework and their housekeys.

As I sipped the last of my morning tea before leaving for work, I took a moment to compose a grateful little haiku about the source of my peace and serenity:

Sweet late school start day,
such luxury are your two
extra hours of sleep.
