I’ve been known to torture my children.
THIS is torture to males of 7-10 years old.
Sunday shirt . . .
dress pants . . .
black vest . . .
. . . and a lilac bush.
“It’s the PURPLE lilac bush, Mom! Not the white one!”
So spare me the dramatics, son. God made purple too.
Daddy’s name for these two – The Goobers.
Truth is, he calls them all The Goobers.
And rightly so.
Some days I am simply done with camouflage trousers, grass-stains, and football shirts.
Some days I tell myself that underneath that ornery exterior lies a civilized little gentleman.
Some days I wonder who I’m kidding . . .
