In Another Life

Tucker is learning more and more about writing his name as well as other letters, and I'd like to give him a few helpful pointers on pencil grip. He seems to think I know nothing about this, that I have no expertise to bring to the table.

I said, "Tuck, did you know I had a job before you were born?"


"Do you know what I did every single day?" (Waiting to wow him with my professional background that matches his kindergarten aspirations.)

"Yep. You were a princess."

From the kitchen, my husband grumbled sardonically, "Yeah, she was."


Times change, people change. Now, about that pencil.

Oh my gosh, this made me laugh so hard! Tell Robb what I tell Steve- this is nothing new...you knew what you were in for when you said "I Do"

You ARE a princess (and you are still a teacher...just in a different light). You also brighten my day!
