Awards

Kids are a mess! As we picked up the Princess from what will be her last day in the public school system, she was toying with the colorful dog tag pinned to her shirt. She seemed so dejected, which is so unusual for my little ball of energy and fun. So Sweetheart asked what it was and why she looked so sad. Her answer was classic.

"It's my Attendance Award, and I got it for never being tardy. But I won't get it next year."

"Well, no, Little One," said I. "You won't be in school next year, so you won't get it. "

"That's what I mean, Daddy. I won't be here, so I'll be tardy all the time!"
