Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss

Marie Bostwick | There is nothing I would not do for my children.

Marie BostwickUnfortunately, my children know this and have no compunction about exploiting my weakness. Over the last 26 years, that exploitation has been demonstrated in countless ways. Allow me to list a few.

ThreadBy my count to date I have …

* Read “Goodnight Moon” 1,630 times.
* Cut the crusts off 4,274 peanut butter sandwiches.
* Delivered forgotten items to school (including books, homework, gym clothes, and lunch boxes of crustless peanut butter sandwiches) 712 times.
* Spent half a year’s wages on overpriced tennis shoes that were outgrown in four months or less.
* Spent another half year of wages buying fundraising items I didn’t want or need, including but not limited to magazines, wrapping paper, calendars, Christmas wreaths, Easter lilies, popcorn, candy, pizzas, and pies.
* Washed 368 industrial sized dumpsters full of dirty laundry.
* Edited 39 term papers, generally between midnight and two a.m. on the day they were due.
* Driven the equivalent of 48 busloads of teenagers to the movies.

If you’re a mother, you know this list is far from comprehensive, but you get the idea. And if you’re a mother, chances are you’re just like me. You’d do anything for your kids.
