Parenting and Pedagogy is about writing my way. Thinking about parenting, teaching, literacy, arts, life, and finding my next path.
Each Tuesday I participate in the Slice of Life Tuesday Challenge hosted at http://twowritingteachers.wordpress.com/
A dull throb is washing over my head. . . again. I drive silently in the chaos that is my children, cramped in a car, afterschool. We bump up the muddy driveway with a splash. I close my eyes for a moment when I shut off the Jeep. Inside supper is on the stove, husband stirring a sauce hears my tone of voice, "Mom doesn't sound happy." "They were good." I say, "but my head is killing me." After hanging up my coat I perch on the stool and try to listen, but soon retreat to the couch. The pillow, tucked just right is a relief. I drape my arm acrossed my forehead, the pressure of it seems to soothe. Soon the voices of my family fade away, like the radio when I am busy, I don't hear their words can't focus on them, but the sound is a comfort. . .
