Watching my Ego


The scene: In the car, on the way home from the doctor’s office. Because yes. Once again somebody is sick. Thomas this time. Hello antibiotics and inhaler every 4 hours. Thomas is pensive, looking out the window, lost in his thoughts. He finally speaks…


Thomas: You aren’t the smartest person in the world, you know.


Me: [Shocked!] Whaaaaaat? Yes I am! Why do you think I’m not??


Thomas: I know you you aren’t.


Me: How do you know?


Thomas: Because you don’t know how to spell everything.


Me: YES I DO!! E-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Ha! [Evil cackle.]


Thomas: [Audibly rolls his eyes at me.]


Me: What?!?

  2. Hehehehehe. Oh I love you both.

    DUDE!!!! The eye rolls kill me. I have to continually stop myself from saying, if you keep doing that, one day they will get stuck there.

    I swore I’d never say that. Is hard. ;)

    Ha! Jonathan spells better than me even though he is only in third grade. He has to call my mom to ask her for help with his homework. Oh, well :-)

    1. Thomas rocks.
    2. Issa, say it. You know you want to. It feels good.
    3. Maya has spelled better than both of her parents since she turned 4 or 5. It’s pathetic.
