So the kids had an early release day from school today and they are officially tracked out for 2 1/2 weeks for their "spring" break (year round school). Currently my middle schooler, 6th grade and soon to be 12 in April (if he makes it), is sitting in his room and has already lost all computer/kindle privileges through the weekend. Only home 3 hours before his mouth got him there.
Now we come to mini#2, my freckled-nosed 2nd grader who suckered me into wearing his lime green fluorescent indoor soccer jersey with black lettering and (gasp) NAVY Adidas sweat pants for his "last" day today. If you know me, I have always dressed my kids nicely- starting with their "leaving the hospital" outfits at birth. But I am disgusted with how easy I give in to 2nd grader's complaints/borderline tantrums when I pull out a cute Mini Boden applique tee to wear. To him, if it's not athletic, it's not worth his time. And mornings are not my favorite. UGH!! Wow. I digressed.
Anyway, I'll just let you guess how I responded to something he said this afternoon.
8 yr old (well, on March 14): "Mom....WHO wants something to DRINK?" (in a sing-song tone)
How do you think I responded? Was it...
A) ME!!! Where's the Pinot??
B) Sure sweetheart. Can I bake you some cookies, too?
C) (in the same sing-song tone) WHO has 2 FEET and 2 HANDS?
Have a great weekend. Pray for me! We're off to a rocky start!
