He goes to preschool.

I drink coffee, watch trashy

TV, feel guilty.

But sometimes a mom just needs to veg out undisturbed, right?

I teach him how to

eat fresh snow — so many smiles

on the walk to school

from my bed I hear

the hollow scrape of a plow —

he dreams of Cali

Every winter at this time, Hubby starts extolling the virtues of California. Those virtues consist of one thing — the weather.

Every time we’re in California visiting his family, he always ends up telling me he would go crazy spending too much time in the car to go anywhere and fight traffic.

I try and remind him about his car concerns when he gets into his winter slump, but he always blows me off and tells me the traffic wouldn’t bother him.

Sounds like it’s time to go to California so that he can remember again (and, I won’t lie, for a little warmth).

“What’s that?” Han Min asks,

pointing to his ears. The roof

pops against the cold.

I’m thinking of you.

Let’s find an artsy cafe

and contemplate life.

“Lips off the toilet!”

Oh, the things I find myself

saying as a mom.

Cold

my cheekbones feel

as though they might

pop through my skin

Despite the negative air temp, I decided to walk little Han Min to school this morning. Previously this week, it was so cold I started the car and drove him, which felt like such a production considering we live next door to his preschool! Today I decided to brave the cold and do the walk.

The walk there didn’t feel so bad, perhaps because I was busy trying to hurry the little guy along. But going home, by myself, it felt SO cold! Running up the driveway, all I could think about was how cold my face was! I thought to myself, “I’ve never ‘felt’ my cheekbones before!”
