Flashback Friday! I was scrolling through some old posts and came across this one which tickled my funny bone. Sometimes enforcing right and wrong goes totally black and white for kids and they put you in your place when you sway into the grey.
..Sometime in 2011:
Today, Glennifer, Bug, and I were landscaping. Yes, my landscaping company ignores the child labor laws. Bug was having a hard time buckling up her seat belt...
BUG: Mom, I can't buckle. It's against the law.
ME: What's the problem?
BUG: The latch thingy is stuck way down there and I can't pull it out.
ME: Well, just don't die, then. We will be there before long.
BUG: Mom, it's illegal!!!!
ME: It's fine. Just don't go through the windshield. You know when we were kids, we never had seat belts. Right, Glennifer?
BUG: But, Mom! That's because you traveled in wagons.
YES! I spit my coffee all over the truck.
I can't keep up with the chaos in today's world. The lion story does nothing for me. Trump is still high in the polls. Hillary is still dodging what is right, choosing what is wrong. And everything else is hell, fire, and damnation. Interesting news....I was encouraged to join the reserve police department here.
Nice offer, but NAH.
