A Mother's Incompetence

We have five minutes.
Get in the car—time for school.
Tires squeal on the street.

Wait! What do I see?
Kids in costumes stroll along.
I forgot costumes!

I do a U-turn
Screech to a stop at the house
Look for something fast.

Fireman hat and coat
I stuff Ethan into it.
Happy Halloween!

I have seen people about in costumes all day! My kids won't be putting theirs on until after naptime!
