Today will be a relatively short post due to major goings on in the Firepants household. Dimples has a Synchronized Swimming water show today, and it’s an all-day affair. My Dorfenbergerthalamus is being stretched to its limits between getting to rehearsals, knoxing/makeup applications, and performances on time. Here’s a glimpse into the frustration of being the Mother of Dimples, a fourth-grader (note the current grade level, as it will help you to appreciate this conversation):
“Mom, when we go shopping tomorrow, can you get me some long-sleeved shirts?”
“Well, maybe one or two. I don’t want to spend a lot because you never want to wear them.”
“Are you kidding me? Every time it gets cold and I try to get you to wear warm clothes, you act like I’m abusing you. You insist on wearing a short sleeved shirt and a sweater. It can be a thirty degree day, and when I pick you up from school your sweater is stuffed in your backpack and your jeans are rolled up to your knees.”
“I don’t think so.”
“I remember there was a time in second grade I wore one.”
