Day Seven of Forty- Good Boy!

The youngest came home from school today with this little gem of knowledge-

"Mom, the girl who sits next to me said that we were on Math 14 and I said 'No, we were on Math 13'." he said.

"And?" I asked.

"Then the teacher said we WERE on Math 13, I knew I was right!  But then..." he continued.

"Yes?" I asked, now interested in where this was going.

"Well, when I looked at the girl to tell her I WAS right, she made a mean face and I got nervous... I just decided I should leave it alone. I think that was best."

Yes, little man. Yes, it was. It's hard to describe the pride I carry when a boy as little as he learns such a big lesson. Keeping the peace with a woman NEVER starts with an, "I told you so."

I will sleep well tonight :)

Happy Tuesday, friends.


  1. If only I could have learned this valuable lesson at such an early age, I could have been so much farther ahead today.

    1. Aw, the important thing is that you know now. Way to be, Mr. Man!! <3

  2. LOL! I sure needed that chuckle today.
    I can only hope someday my GROWN man will be as smart as your LITTLE man. ;}

    Have a wonderful LEAP day, my FF <3

    1. I hear you, F.F...Actually, we're quite lucky to have such smart boys..ALL of them :)

  3. Ha, I don't think truer words have ever been spoken. As soon as a boy is able to read, he should be provided with the rules on "keeping the women in your life happy". I guess I should get going on that list and save Quinn years of pain. :)

    1. Your list should be a book. I'm betting it would be a best seller! Perhaps the divorce rate may go down after laying down all that wisdom. Give Quinn a kiss from me :)
