Well, Shoot, There Goes That.

You know how kids will try out a phrase, just to measure its emotional affect on a parent?

Last Friday, Maeve got so angry with me (because I asked her to try on the potty before she went to school) that she dropped this one on me: Mom, I am NEVER going to marry you now!!!!!!

I didn't realize how much of parenting consists of not laughing when you're sorely tempted to.

I managed to say to her: I'm sorry to hear that, honey, but you still have to try on the potty before school.

So I guess that engagement is over!

Happy Monday, happy Labor Day!

She still loves Patches, though.
