I would like to apologize for everything I put you through during my childhood. All of the smart remarks, mouthy comebacks and disrespect (I’m sure some of you are shocked that I did any of that).
It’s true. I spent most of my life from age 7 or 8 until 14 in my room grounded for something I probably said.
The reason for my apology? Yesterday, I got a preview of what Paige’s preteen years are going to be like and it isn’t pretty. Let’s just say at one point I asked her if she thought she was smarter than me.
It was not a good day and I’m dreading the years to come. Hopefully she will be smart like my brother. When I was maybe 14 and he was 7, I remember one night that I had mouthed off and got grounded. My brother came in and asked me why I didn’t wait to say the mouthy comments into my pillow once I got to my room. He informed me I would get in a lot less trouble. I never could figure that out. Hopefully, Paige will listen to his advice.
Between Parker’s comedic acts and Paige’s drama, this momma definitely keeps busy. How many days til school starts??
