Me: "Okay. We're here. Unstrap yourself."
Mags: "Mama, please pause the CD so I can finish hearing this song when I get out of school."
I did pause the music. I promise I did. But then you know what happens? You get back in the car, by yourself, and it's a race to fit everything into the three precious hours they are in preschool. So when the music cued back up when I started the car, I just naturally joined in and sang along. It took me until I pulled into the parking space at the grocery store to realize that I was bee-bopping along to the Imagination Movers...by myself. Of course, then I hummed the catchy tune throughout the grocery store making up my own lyrics.
Checked-out and unpacked, I hightailed it over to the pharmacy, dry cleaners, bank, and a quick stop for gas....all the while singing along with the Movers' Rock-O-Matic CD (and the correct lyrics). Then my time was up. Next stop...pick up Mags.
We bounded out of preschool happy to see one another. Strapped in and ready to go, I turned on the car. Music please, Maestro! And we were off. Everything was peachy until...she noticed.
Mags: "HEY! You've been listening to the CD! I asked you to wait for me!"
Me: "What? I did not."
Mags: "Yes you did, Mama! It was on the sunshine song when I got out and now it's on 'Wittle Wed Wagon'."
Me: "I'm sorry, Mags. The CD must have started up again when I got in the car. I'll turn it back. No biggie."
Mags: "It's okay if you listen, Mama. I know you miss me when I'm in school."
And truer words had never been spoken. I miss my munchkins while they're at school. So, if I'm humming a song that reminds me of them, then that's okay. Because it keeps them close...and time is fleeting.
Never mind I was sooooooo busted!
BUT WAIT! GREAT NEWS!
