Let me preface this post to clarify that I am in no way intending any disrespect to Dr. Martin Luther King and his inspirational words…(although reading and imagining me using that big booming voice will add some flavour). This is just a thought that has been echoing in my brain a lot lately!!!
I have a dream… .it’s a simple dream…. it’s a dream of a small but humble list of wishes that I experience several times per day….
I have a dream – I have a dream that just for one day I can use the toilet alone, make an uninterrupted phone call, or leave the house without saying the following phrases 472 times:
“put on your shoes”;
“put your clothes back on”; or
“did you just poop?”
I have a dream….
I have a dream that when I take someone by the hand in a parking lot they will not go “limp”, or run away from me, or lose their sh*t!
I have a dream that all the little people in my house will be sleeping soundly at 8:00 p.m. and then no one will peep again until 7:00 a.m.
I have a dream that my laundry will miraculously start self-washing/self-folding/self-putting away-ing!
I have a dream that I can type my most recent blog post without a kid on either side of me wondering what that little paper clip with the “googly eyes” is (btw – how do you get rid of that annoying little paper clip?)
What’s your dream? An uninterrupted bubble bath perhaps? A lazy stroll through a cosmetics department? Would love to hear from you!
