PARENTING, TRAVEL, AND LITTLE JOYS
One time I was directing an 8th grade musical and this one mom offered to just hang out and help keep the kids in line and I’m like yes great. So this one kid like won’t shut up and then Tyrone’s mom stands up from the back row of the darkened auditorium in her leather trench coat and calmly but loudly goes, “I know where you live. And I know where your mother lives. And Jesus knows where you both live.” And then all the kids were awesome.
This was over a decade ago but may we all go into this week with a real Tyrone’s-mom energy.
Both for your kids and for you.
Self-regulation is the key to everything. If you want to read my favorite parenting book, it's Self Reg.
Max: Does the 52nd president of the United States have to know capital and lower-case?
Me: I sure hope so.
Max: *sigh* Then we better get to work.
Max and I spent all of January preparing his own art museum. He made all different styles of art, tickets, signs, the whole deal. This is him giving his dad (the museum’s only visitor) a tour.
Clearly thrilled. Such joy. Have a great week, reluctant homeschoolers!
