Irate, I then ran to Costco for my Fiber One bars and Diet Red Bull. Proper nutrition is very important for a mom on the go.
After a visit to the music store to get Joey's updated piano primers and a trip to the dry cleaners for our Easter clothes, I began my after-school pick-ups. That was when the clock really started ticking. We had exactly one hour to buy baseball cleats before the inaugural first practice of the season. Target didn't have the right sizes. The next store didn't even carry baseball goods. We desperately hurried into the Sports Authority where I frantically raced around the store trying to find a shoe that would fit Daniel.
After 10 minutes, it finally dawned on me that maybe my 7 year old needed a men's shoe. We found a size 7 and it fit like a glove. In the meantime, diligent little Jack had also found a box with his appointed size, but I did not bother reviewing his selection until after we left the store. That was when things got a little too Land of Oz:
My husband is appalled. He thinks I'm trying to Dorothy-ify Jack with ruby red baseball cleats. I think I'm just looking for a place where troubles (and the consequences of procrastination) melt like lemon drops.
If the shoe fits....
