7:00 I somersault out of satin sheets and sled down to the kitchen to slurp my cereal. 8:00 The bus bumps around the bend. It stops at my house. I bounce aboard, waving “bye!” to Mom and Dad. 9:00 The sound of pencils pitter-pattering across paper fills my ears. 10:00 Ten wonderful, wiggly wandering toes want to run wild in the wind. 11:00 There’s a tug-of-war in my tummy, telling me it’s time for a snack. 12:00 Leaping lizards launch from their seats. Lunchtime! 1:00 Time-out for our toes, tired from tumbling and twirling. Teacher tells us tales of tigers and bears. 2:00 Afternoon sunlight arabesques across our faces. 3:00 Blissfully bid the birds goodbye as I board the bus to go home. 4:00 Mom says I am gobbling those grapes and goldfish like a gorilla as I gush about my day. 5:00 Flustered, flabbergasted, and famished, our family of five crashes like kites around the table. 6:00 Squish, squash, squeeze - sweet ice cream does a drip-drop dance down our chins…the most delicious hour of the day. 7:00 Swish slosh splish splash goes the water in the bathtub. 8:00 Mom and Dad’s kisses cuddle together on my cheek. Soft stuffed Sam is snuggled close, tucked under my chin. I turn the pages as mom reads. “Just one more story! Pretty please?” I plead. 9:00 10:00 11:00 12:00 1:00 2:00 3:00 4:00 5:00 6:00 The quiet hours, the midnight hours when brains dance with new information. Outside, fireflies float, stars sparkle. In the east, the sun rises from rest.
