The other day, Mary came up to me and announced:
“Mom, I have a drinking problem.”
Her throat was feeling a bit sore.
Last night, Mary said:
“I like Christmas better than Hanukkah. Hanukkah is for normal people. Christmas is for Catholics, and we’re Catholic, so I like Christmas.”
Moses said choose life or death. Apparently, Christ said choose me or normalcy.
BTW, I do not correct my children when they say things like this. It’s much more amusing to just smile and nod and let them talk.
Saw an article via FB that said poll results indicate that moms think 3 kids are the hardest number to manage. As my husband says, switching to zone defense from one-on-one coverage is difficult. But the article covered families of 1-4 children. In my personal experience, SIX was a killer.
Yes, Mary is my #6.
The root cause of my drinking problem.
