Ten.Seven Hundred & Fifty

  1. I hear a movie playing. I check his room and both of them are fast asleep. I had forgotten there was a dvd player in his room.

  2. Scones? Muffins? I should at least get the coffee going while I decide.

  3. I rinse the blueberries and the strawberries, sprinkle them with a little bit of sugar. Then I whip up some fresh cream and place it in a small bowl. There’s still plenty of granola. I set everything out on the table. This makes me a little happier.

  4. Marlborough Pinot Noir.

  5. I worry that they think that me being a mother, and placing a priority on being a mother, makes me more of a liability than an asset.

  6. We go over the incident again. It was just a crazy way to end the day.

  7. I make him take a shower.

  8. So many people and no familiar faces. This is new for everyone.

  9. His math and science teacher is black. Black! A black man for math and science, his most favorite subjects. I want to cry.

  10. Representation matters.
