The first day back. Real life.
Robe on. Smile.
Awoken by babies who don't dread the day.
Jeans on. Smile
Mind clicking, pancakes flipping.
Apron on. Smile.
Table set. Kids bleary, over 3 feet tall
Coffee poured. Smile.
Sodium Chloride/Sodium Bicarbonate Nasal rinse in a jar,
Someone mistakes it for syrup.
Head back. Laugh and Laugh.
Holiday over. Real life.
