My daughter, Katie, and I sat at the dining room table for about an hour doing our homework. Me and my algebra and her writing out her spelling words 5 times each. About half way through our homework session she says to me... "Mama.... you are writing an awful lot." To which I replied.."Yes, yes I am."
Katie - "Then you must be awful tired of writing?"
Me - "Katie, you are not getting out of writing those spelling words."
Katie - " Geez, MOM! That's the last time I feel sympathy for you!"
She is only 8. Oy! I am so in for it when she turns 13.
