Parenting is hard, but also kind of awesome

A special edition of “Overheard,” as it pertains the previous post:

Olivia’s preschool teacher, Karina: “Your daughter is doing really well. She’s so sweet and well behaved, and she is very obedient.”

Me: “I’m Rebecca, Olivia’s mom.”

Karina: “I know….”

Me: “Oh! Right. Great, then.”

Me: “Ava, don’t you remember the conversation we had on the way to school yesterday? About no crying? No whining?”

Ava: “Mom, why don’t we just start with less crying and less whining, and we can see how that goes.”

    So, are you prepared for an almost 6 year old who wants to reason with you?

    Very smart, Ava. Under promise, over deliver.
