This six year old boy gave me the opportunity (as my Aunt Donna would say) to clean the kitchen floor this morning (after he dumped a bowl of oily, honey water off the counter while helping his sister make bread).
This six year old boy has declared more than once to his siblings, "Mom is making me miserable!" (a feeling that comes over him when he has to do his jobs, do more school than he likes, etc.)
This six year old boy made me choke on my water when he nonchalantly said to his 17 y.o. sister, "When you are a Mom, I hope you have a beard."
