We are one week into our morning hussle, hassle, pretend we can get ready in 25 minutes, morning routine in preparation for the school day. We’ve got a little something something down and have been where we need to be for 5 straight days! Yeh, we rock!
Once we make it into the car to drive H bomb to school my mind goes on full auto-pilot and I ignore all the crazy ass “bantering” between the 2 kids 2 feet behind me.
Until Will attempted the following yesterday. The scene: stoplight, behind school bus and approximately 482 cars on 2 lane road halfway to Hannah’s school. Bantering, bantering, bantering, ignoring, ignoring, ignoring and then:
Will: that’s an odd place to hang a pinata!
Me: What? Where do you see a pinata?
Will: HA! Made you look. I LOVE that game.
Me: Ha! You’re funny. (in my head: damn. I fell for it and allowed my auto-pilot to be interrupted. MUST. BE. STRONGER. THAN. 7 YO. AND. HIS. TACTICS)
20 seconds later….
Will: That’s a weird place to put a piano.
Me: No reaction
Will: And why is someone playing it?
I must admit I turned my head. But I DID NOT say anything. Which is kinda like no reaction! This kid is smart & strong. I must improve my auto-pilot skills if I’m going to make it on these car rides until June.
