A Supermom reader and friend with whom I stayed while on my book tour in Portola Valley California (soooo beautiful there) emailed me this:
“I wasn’t kidding how nuts I am w/ driving…I now have to make MY MOM take a cab from airport b/c of kids schedules.. I have NEVER had to make her take cab….hard w/ out usual help from sitter….”
To which I responded:
“Oh Girl I totalllly get it bc I am living the dream too ha. I spend a lot of time as a taxi service to my five kids –nd no one gives a shout out to moms for doing this, do they? I’m going to write a blog about it and give you a shout out.”
So here I am with a big SHOUT OUT to all those Supermoms and Superdads out there who feel at times like a taxi service. You’re not alone, and what you do matters.
And remember to practice Deliberate Creation while you’re shuttling. Ignore what you don’t like/want (traffic, red lights, and teenagers coppin’ a ‘tude) and focus on what you DO like/want (priceless conversations with your kids, gratitude that you HAVE a car and therefore the freedom to get around, and the fact that your child is a developmentally appropriate teen and doing his or her job as such–talk to someone whose child has had a concussion or fallen out of a second story window or lost oxygen at birth to tune into this gratitude).
Have the best day ever!
