Predicting the future

Me: Nathan, did you stay on green today?
(Remember: This is how kindergartners track their behavior at school...green is no problem, yellow is some sort of infraction and red is just not good)

Nathan: YES!

Claire: I stayed on red.

It felt like some sick premonition.

We'll have to make a mental note to NOT let Claire and Izzie hang out (at least not too often) when they're teenagers. Good Lord, can you imagine?

Oh my gosh that cracked me up!! Of our three kids (2 boys, 1 girl) Siri is definately the naughtiest:)
What would a girl be without a little spunk though!!

Drew spent more time on red than on green. SERIOUSLY.

And I honestly believe Molly will be on red more than Drew was.

Perfect example:

Today coming home from swap sitter.

Me: Girls, were you behaved today?
Emily: Yup. I sure was.
Molly: Not me. I was naughty. Really naughty. I was very good at being naughty.

Oh dear heavens, that last one is gonna be the death of me yet.
