Sitting in the car at a red light the other day, I pulled a small blue sharpie out of the glove box and drew a tiny smiley face on SG's knee. If you haven't parented a tween girl, then you may not fully understand the lengths it takes to get her to smile when she's in a mood.
Well, that particular week, I not only forgot to give baths the night of the drawing incident, but I also forgot to give showers the next morning. I might have forgotten to give baths for the next 3 days.
That's a hard thing to admit, but I'm all about honesty here, so there you go. My kids were stinky and my son still had marker ALL over him. I even sent him to two parties with that marker all over him. TMI? Maybe so.
