We were leaving for school today, and as we were backing out of the driveway Connor said, "I don't know what to write about in my journal today."
So as we headed to school, we were thinking of some things he could write about. I said, "Why don't you write about your cousin James visiting and how he loves to play ball with you. Or write about soccer practice the other night, when you scrimmaged that other team and kicked their booties, or ...."
Just then some song came on the radio that we all dance crazy to, (while I am driving because the kids find that embarrassing so I do it often) and sing to - and we were all just jammin' away, when in my rear view mirror I see flashing lights....
Much to Connor's delight, he said "Now I know what I am going to write about in my journal today!!!" with the biggest s**t-eating grin on his face.
Hannah on the other hand was mortified because she knows that all her friends know our vanity license plate and were probably driving by as I was waiting for my ticket....... The downside to having a fun plate - you are soooo recognizable!
