Dear PTA Mom from Tonight,

But, here’s the thing.

Because I rent, and his father owns, we chose to place him in his dad’s school zone. So, every day, I drive forty-five minutes out of my way, twice a day, to take my son to school, and pick him up. That’s 70 minutes longer than it takes me to commute when he’s with his dad. Then I spend 8–9 hours at a job that requires my constant attention, and if you’ve met my son ( who inherited his attention span from me), maybe you can imagine how exhausting that would be.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
