This morning, I'd finally cajoled the kids into getting into the van...by yelling down the hall, "Bye, see you later!!!" and headed towards the door. It's one of the more foolproof bluffs I've got left in my flagging arsenal. We were going to the park, you'd think they'd be more interested.
I pulled out of the driveway and about 50 feet from the house, decided I needed to go back.
Me: I forgot my coffee. I'm backing up.
Smunch. Why is THAT so important???
Someday, my dear boy, you will understand.
