I remember those days! I can just see little Lexi twirling and dressed from top to "bottom" in green.

Aww, this is oh-so-cute! What a fun, playful story. Loved it!
I could see this mom dealing with her kids on a school morning. You made her (and the kids) very real. Cute ending. Cute story.

A FUN entry for this topic. I'm in love with Lexi. :) She's taking Green Day very seriously! I like the ending, but in another way it feels "added on", and your story would have been good ending after "Lexi stuck the plastic dinosaur in her bag just in time for the bus." That would mess up your title and your "punch" tho. ;) (Just an observation.)

Great dialog between mother and son. It sounds very natural, and carries the story VERY well! The voice is comfortable, and this story was a true pleasure to read. Kudos!
