For whom the bell tolls

Tardy slips emerged from the crevices of her bookbag in what seemed to be an unending string. One, two, three, four, five, SIX... Who knew? Just every administrator at school, her teachers and just about everyone - but her parents. Sure, it's always been a chore getting Faith out the door on time, but somehow we thought we were squeaking by as Matt hasn't had to take her by the office but a couple of times. We didn't realize she wasn't hitting morning assembly before the bell. There are so many things that can go wrong in the morning. Where did she leave her shoes? How can we fix her hair? Where is her bookbag? It's been even harder now that I'm not home to get breakfast going and snacks packed. Tomorrow is another theme-dress day and I've already laid out Faith's clothes. Let's hope she's safe before the bell.
