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?"

"Yep."

"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."

Ahem.

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!
