Scene: At the mall, my older children seated at a table quietly reading books, me seated at the play area watching my 3 year old play with the other children…
A mom sitting next to me leans over and says: “Look at those kids at that table, they are reading books”.
Me: “Yep, gotta get that reading done sometime.”
Other mom: “I cannot believe how well behaved they are.”
Me: “Awe, Thank you!”
Other mom in disbelief: “Those are YOUR kids?”
Me: “Yeah, they’re pretty great.”
(long pause as she looks at me and then my kids)
Other mom: “Wow… maybe I could handle three!”
Ha! Just here to make you feel more qualified!!!
Have a great day!
