why I won't be "Mother of the Year" anytime soon

Yes, it's spring, when a young girl's thoughts turn to light jackets, tank tops, skorts and other summery attire.

Today, my daughter refused to wear a coat to school. I decided, for once, not to argue with her about how she'd be cold.

Now, it's snowing.

    Oh no! Is it terrible that I laughed when I read this? Did the Bee show up blue-lipped and hypothermic? Or simply chastened and with the realization that mom is all-knowing in the way of outerwear?

    She somehow managed to avoid both hypothermia and the realization that I am all-knowing. Kids today!

    This cracked me up too! Oh man, I'm hoping Bee is older than Rian cause I've used the line "I know you don't like but I'm your mother and I'm right", like, way too many times!

    That and "It sucks being you" like when he's getting his diaper changed. I'm trying to be sensitive and empathize or whatever...

    Anyway, I'm HUGE fan of 'Bee Stories' - put me on the list for pre-order! Kris

    I laughed too!

    Can you at least use it as a lesson: "Remember when you didn't want to wear your coat and IT SNOWED??"

    I can top that -- well, my husband can. Last November, we were hustling from the restaurant to the car when my little guy spotted the first Santa of the season -- a cute outdoor setup with a sleigh and a pen with two real reindeer -- and insisted on sitting in the sleigh.
    SANTA: What would you like Santa to bring?
    LITTLE GUY: Diesel-10!
    SANTA: That's all?
    LITTLE GUY: Yep, just Diesel-10.
    SANTA (meaningful glance at my husband): How about a HAT and some GLOVES?
    Oooh, Santa Snap!

    Roughmagic, I just laughed out loud for a whole minute at the burn from Santa. Who knew Santa could be a meanie?
