There is a reason why I am late every morning.
I have three children.
No matter what time I arise, tardiness seems to be the case.
And when I do leave on time, there is sure to be traffic to entrap me until tardiness is certain.
When did tardiness get such a bad wrap anyway?
Tardiness is a reminder to me of all that I have accomplished for my family in the morning. It means I spent some time brushing hair and teeth.
I believe that tardiness should be a badge of honor.
People should throw me high fives and say, "Well done. What a job you did this morning!" When the teacher marks my son tardy, she should mark it with a star instead of a solemn check mark.
So for all of you moms out there who are unable to make it anywhere on time, Kudos to you. Wow, the jobs you must be doing at home!
Rise up and feel proud with me that we have accomplished just a little bit more by being late.
