In My Head III
Mia L. Hazlett
This is going to be the best day of my whole entire life. I don’t know when it was the last time I saw Daddy, but today we are going to spend the whole day together. Well not just us, my sister is coming to. I made sure last night Mommy braided my hair pretty. I spent all last night trying to decide which dress to wear. I decided to wear a sparkly pink dress he had bought me. It was really hard to sleep last night, but now it is morning.
Mommy and my sister are still sleeping. I’m not going to have breakfast because Daddy is going to take us to breakfast. When we talked on the phone yesterday, he said I could do anything I wanted to all day. I said I wanted to go out for breakfast. Then I wanted to go to the movie with the girl I saw from my TV show. Then we can go to the bookstore because I want to get a book in my book series. Then we could go to dinner before we came home. I couldn’t even believe it. He said yes to everything. This was really going to be the best day.
When I go into my mother’s room, she is just waking up. I already have my sparkles on and I found my matching headband with the sparkly bow. Daddy is going to think I’m so pretty. I ask Mommy to wake my sister up because Daddy is going to be here in an hour. She needs to look just as pretty for him.
Mommy gets my sister ready and I turn the TV on. The big window is behind the TV and I can see the driveway at the same time. Daddy is going to be here in fifteen minutes. I wish he was here right now because I am so hungry. I love the place we go because they have the biggest waffles in the world and that is the only time Mommy lets me put whipped cream on them. I’m going to ask for extra whipped cream today.
I already looked on my Mommy’s phone and the movie starts at 12:10. We will have enough time to eat breakfast even if the restaurant is really crowded and we have to wait like we sometimes do. Five more minutes before Daddy is here. I’m so excited. Wait. I’m going to go to the bathroom so I don’t have to once we are out. Mommy isn’t going to be there to take us to the girls’ room so I need to go now.
I run out of the bathroom and I didn’t even wash my hands. Sometimes I just run the water so Mommy thinks that I do. When I look in the driveway, no one is there. I thought I heard Daddy’s car. My sister is watching her show on the couch and I sit next to her to wait for Daddy. This is going to be the best day ever.
