There are always the mortifying mommy moments, like when your kid licks someone in line at Wal-Mart. Yes, a total stranger. On the arm.
Then there are the proud mommy moments. Like when your kid jumps in the car and declares “Its the best day of my life!” because his first Scholastic book order came.
That same day, I had a second proud moment:
Robbie: “Do you like my drawing [of Bumblebee]?”
Me: “Yes, you’re drawing has gotten so much better so fast since we stopped watching so much tv…..though that reminds me….I guess it is Friday….I should mention you can watch tv today if you want to…”
Robbie: “Naaa. I just want to DRAW PICTURES!”
And he did.
