Look at me. Are you listening? Okay. Socks and shoes on–NOW. Chop chop! Hey, did I sign your reading log?
Did you brush your teeth?
[a bit of eye rolling] Yes.
Where's your homework?
In my backpack.
Did you remember your valentines?
Did you address them yet?
Why not?! I bought them a week ago–you've had time to do this!
Mom, if I put a valentine in their pouch, then obviously the valentine is for them; addressing them would be redundant.
Well. Don't you think you should at least put who it's from?
No . . .
Um. Doesn't the Bible say to do good things for people without telling anyone you did them?
I've been told this is a symptom of having possible lawyer or politician tendencies. And I did try so hard to be a good mother . . .
