A Funny thing Happened The Other Day . . .

One afternoon, the boys and I were standing outside the front door.  I was trying multiple keys to unlock the front door, because after almost nine years of living in the same house, I still can't tell you which silver key on my key ring is the house key.  Then Big Brother patiently says, "Mom, don't you know that the key that says DEFIANT on it, is the house key?"  Pause . . . . yes, he's right.  Hmmmm . . . . it would take nine years and my nine year old to figure that out.  Life can really humble you sometimes!!!!

Nice! Just so you feel a little better about yourself...I have the same problem. I patiently try every key except the car key every time.

I love the wisdom of children. When I was a nanny, for a 12 year old boy and 8 year old girl, they would always say these smart, ironic things that humbled me and made me feel a little "less" grown-up...:>)

Love this . . Big Brother is such a smarty!

After several years of the same frustration, I finally painted some nail polish on my house key.
