Are We There Yet?

17 May

Every day…

I am asked this

In every way

From a very impatient child

About 15 times


Hustle Hustle

In the car…
Carseats secure…

Key in the ignition

“Mommy…are we there yet?”


We are still in the garage.”

Pulling out … in traffic

Stopping at light…

As that is the law.


“Mommy? Are we there yet?”


How many cars are in front of me?”

“A lot Mommy”

“And how many schools?”

“No schools Mommy.”



Traffic light again…

1 mile from school.

Passing McDonalds…


Are we there yet?”


What is that place there?”

“Old MacDonalds”

Close enough…

“and do you go to school at McDonalds?”

“Mommy…CAN we go to school there… can we …. CAN WE CAN WE CAN WE CAN WE?”

For heavens sake…

this child has driven …

well ridden technically

(but that would make for an interesting blog)

to school 5 days a week for over 3 years.

She can tell you every store

stop light

every homeless person…

and when you are not going in the right direction.

SO Why??

Why does she ask me this in what appears to be a Rainman inspired chant.

Oh! Joyous Moment... we have arrived.

In the parking lot…

“Mommy… are we there yet?”


Thank God …
We are.”
