Am I smarter than a third grader……………..

August 15, 2010

You would think so, but my third grader is thinking “not even close.” Last night I tucked her into bed and she was complaining that I spent longer in her brother and sister’s room than I spent in her room. And, that was as I was walking in the door. Yeah, put your seatbelt on.

(Have a mentioned before that we have a college-savings plan and a therapist-savings plan?)

Me: Honey I am just not sure that is true
Her: It is (Enter big arse tears)
Me: I just got here
Her: But you n.e.v.e.r. stay here as long as you stay in THEIR rooms

By way of background, Angel’s grandmother bought her a new bed that arrived yesterday and will (prayerfully) be assembled today.

Me: Well, the good news is that you are getting a brand new bed tomorrow. Isn’t that exciting?
Her: You a.l.w.a.y.s. do that
Me: What?
Her: When I am mad at you, you always try to distract me with something happy.

Dear heavens. Please start praying for me now. She has broken the mother code.

    It’s awful when they start outsmarting you, huh? Mine have been doing it for a while. And button pushing seems to be a very special gift of my nine year old boy.
