The Race is On

It's okay tortoise. I'll wait.

I have a tortoise and a hare.

My son is faster than light and just as blinding.

We believe he may have adhd.

My daughter is slow as molasses and just as sweet.

So slow that every teacher she has ever had has given her some sort of nickname meaning “slow”

We believe she may have add.

It is weird to live with the two of them.


Him always pressing forward.

Her always hanging back.

And me somewhere in the middle.

The only thing they have in common is their inate ability to lose focus.

We had parent teacher conferences today.

Right now, in the competition to be the best student?

Hare is winning.

But tortoise is in it for the long haul.  I have not counted her out of the race.
