I spent a good hour of the day today texting, emailing, and calling people to help me scatter my children to piano lessons, tball practice, baseball practice, etc while I forced a haircut appointment to happen.  Hair and nails are the two things that, as a mom of young children, are painstakingly hard to schedule because those are two activities that require babysitting during work hours.  And, as a teacher, I have to be with all these other children during work hours, so therefore, I have an even more difficult time scheduling these little life tasks.

But, today, with a little help from my friends, I was able to make it happen, and my Crystal Gayle hair has been trimmed into submission. At one point, I was even arguing with myself about whether or not the driving age should be changed to eight.  Life will be different when these little people can take themselves places, right?

Thank you friends…we’ve heard it takes a village to raise a child, but it might just take a village to be a mom.
