Today is Sparky's first day of school... It's a half day for new "upperclassmen" and a full day for new freshman... She doesn't need to be there until noon... We have had quite a morning already... Here is a brief look at our day so far...
Sparky: "I don't know what I should wear."
Me: "What about the outfit you told me about three days ago?"
S: "I need a white tank top for it."
M: "Don't you have a new one?"
S: "I got paint on it this weekend painting my bedroom."
M: (not losing it...yet) "Why did you wear your new tank top to paint in?"
S: "I didn't know the paint would bleed through my t-shirt. Will you run to Wal-Mart and get me a clean one?"
S: "I'll pay for it."
M: "You'll have to work something out... You have six other new tank tops, choose one of those."
S: "They are all in colors I need white..."
M: (doing my best Tim Gunn) "Make it work..."
S: "You just want me to look like a fool don't you?"
M: "Yep, you got me... Yes,
S: (rolls eyes... walks away)
VOICE OVER: (in my head) "Ladies and gentleman... start your engines..."
Thanks for listening,
