Time Management

We were eating dinner last night and Elizabeth looked up, a carrot in one hand.

"Mom?" She paused, took a bite. "Why don't princesses wave fast? Instead of slow?"

I stopped to take this in. I laughed, careful not to to make her feel bad about her question. But I pictured a fairy tale princess, a beauty queen, Will's wife Kate, waving really fast, like I would,  if I were forced into a life of polite hand waving.

Hey, hey, hi! Gotta go, gotta run! Let's go, let's go, let's go! Kids, school, groceries, work, laundry, love, the book, life. Ta, ta!

You understand? Muah!
