Apron on the Fly

My baby sister
called me today
and wondered if I could make an apron
for her boss at work.

"Sure," I say,
" Its for her niece,"she says,
and I say, "Okay"
"and she needs it by Thursday"
she says.

This gives me pause.
Because she lives in Florida.
And its Tuesday.

There was no way this could happen,
unless I had a full time nanny
willing to change poop
and answer every whiny call and tattle.

and an army of minions
to do my every bidding.

I called the only person I know
who I knew would come no matter what,

and who is like an army of minions,
even though she is only one person.

Because she is endlessly creative
and she keeps me focused.
(and she often brings McDonald's for the kids for lunch)

said she would be right over.

sincerely hope

Little Princess Sophia
her fairy apron.

and please excuse
my grumpy
wild haired
still pajama clad
modeling in these pictures.

I don't have that nanny
that I was speaking of earlier.

So not everything got done today.
