Good Mom/Bad Mom

I got quoted. As I mentioned in the comments there, it almost makes up for the horrific trip to hell that inspired the post.

G. is usually very, very careful about everything, but sometimes he sees Stop signs as suggestions rather than the law.

Yesterday we were all in the car and he almost plowed through a 4-way intersection where someone else had the right-of-way. Then he slightly slowed down for the next Stop sign.

"Geez!" I said, quietly. "No wonder you get tickets."

From the back seat, Ben spoke up. "Papa! You are not driving!"

That's it. He's taking Papa's keys for a week and that's it.

The kid across the street has moved in been visiting a lot lately. Just now, as Ben and A. argued about something, he said in his wise 8-year-old way, "Boy, you guys have lots of issues."

WOW! Congrats!

I agree - that post was great. I didn't comment because I didn't know what to say except what I should have said, which is You are so awesome!

Telling me I'm awesome is always a fine thing to do. Don't hold back.
