|Never More Bookstore, Beaufort, SC|
With eight kids it was probably the only time she was alone. Never fear- we quickly foiled her precious solitude!
One of us would wake up, hear the keys clicking and decide we needed a drink or bathroom visit. We'd enjoy a few minutes of rare solitary attention before the next kid traipsed in, and then the next. Soon we'd have the warm kitchen full of sleepy children wrapped in shawls and blankets, insisting on being read to before we went back to our beds.
Sorry but not sorry Mum!
