Today I went to my youngest son's elementary school for "Muffins with Mom". There are several of these breakfast events to choose from. There is also "Donuts with Dad" and "Bagels with a Buddy". Each family can choose one each year to go to. My son chose the first event.
I wore my "Mom" jeans. The pair that emphasize my "Muffin Top". It only seemed fitting.
While I am extremely appreciative of this annual breakfast event, I couldn't help but wonder. The time alloted was from 7:30 to 7:50. Just 20 minutes. Just enough time to run in the building, grab a cup of coffee or juice and a muffin, find a seat and eat. Quickly.
I was able to meet a few moms at our table. Briefly. At 7:50 we briskly walked to the classroom. No time to talk to the teacher. Not even a wave. It was time for students to get ready and get down to business.
This reminds me of Parent-Teacher conferences.
Feels like speed dating (not that I've ever done that).
This begs the question: What is so magical about "Twenty Minutes"?
It takes me Twenty Minutes just to warm up!
