am, for a variety of unusual
reasons, going out of town for
19 days, beginning on a Mon-
day, covering two Shabbats,
and ending on a Friday morning
with a red-eye flight from L.A.
back home to Miami. I am going
on a rare vacation trip, just my
mother and me.
Mom was very ill last year, and
now she is, thank Heaven, very
well. This is her celebration of life
and survival, and — with the help
of my husband — Pm going along.
I expect to have a wonderful
time, if I can just get out of town.
I am trying to delegate my life
before I go. I am handing chunks
of my responsibilities — mostly
involving three children and the
a familiar and benevolent adult
presence, when the children get
home. They will arrive in two sep-
arate carpools, one for the five-
year-old and the eight-year-old,
who will come home, every day,
with the same neighbor, and one
for the sixth grader, who leads
a more complicated life than her
The tutor will come late after-
noon every day, to help with
homework and to start the
process of being sure it gets done.
Daddy will finish that process,
but the tutor will help youngsters
over the rough spots.
I have written notes to all the
teachers, especially the five-year-
old's pre-kindergarten team. If

logistics of a household — to oth-
er people, paid and unpaid. The
person who is taking the biggest
chunk, and who is also best
equipped, best trained and most
highly motivated, is my husband.
He's about to have three weeks
of one big constant Father's Day,
standing at the head of an army
that includes carpool parents, the
cleaning lady, the tutor, the high
school sophomore next door, the
children's teachers and various
friends and relations.
The sophomore will come in
the back door each morning, put
out breakfast and make school
lunches, while Daddy gets the
kids up, dressed and off to school.
He'll have to wake up at six to do
that; if he had to make box lunch-
es, too, he'd be getting up at five.
The cleaning lady will be here,
he starts swiping other's nap
blankets and grabbing all the
graham crackers, at least they'll
know why he's so ornery. He is
the one I most fret about leaving.
It is hard to explain a three-week
absence to a child who doesn't
quite understand what a week is.
To tide him over, I bought a
pack of Lion King post cards,
numbered them, and wrote him
a mash note on each one (not that
he can read).
I haven't left my husband any
presents, beyond a freezer full of
prepared dinners and, anyway,
the amount of gratitude I feel is
tough to gift wrap. But I already
know what he's going to want for
Father's Day: a three week va-
cation. And, by the way, he will
have earned it. IA
