At Least One of Them Gets It
After the weekend from hell with Miss Pretty Princess, it was so nice to hear my son say "I am glad that we are not rich because if we got everything that we ever wanted then it wouldn't be special and we wouldn't want to work for anything" last night. I nearly choked on my Philly cheesesteak sandwich when I heard those words come out of his mouth. I even yelled at Derek (screamed like the house was on fire) and made him come back into the living room so that Bryce (the 15 year old son) could repeat what he said. It was a great moment. It deserved repeating. After he repeated it for the benefit of the daddy, Riley (the 14 year old son) looked at me and said "Nah - I would rather be rich". Oh well .... at least one of them gets it ... or he is putting on a good show because he is grounded for his bad grades and is doing some major ass kissing to try to get on our good side. Just for today I am going to believe that we are doing something right ... just for today.
