Mom As Camel

ME:

slowly methodically walking backwards down the stairs–

leather breifcase over right shoulder filled with Mac Book and other work essentials–

right arm tightly wrapped around fuzzy-pajama clad Becca as she burrows her head into my shoulder–

pile of books in left arm Statue of Liberty style with napkin-stuffed tea cup precariously perched on top

Carefully leaning over to place Becca on the ground.

Becca:

Blissfully jumping down and running off without a backward glance as if she had just stepped off an escalator on her way to an errand.
