Conversation in the van this afternoon.
Kyler: "Mom, you know how you get mad when I tell you about a school assignment the night before it's due?"
Mom: "Yes, Kyler. So, what's due tomorrow?"
Kyler: "NOTHING, NOTHING! I got an assignment that's due next Thursday. Well, I got it yesterday, but you weren't in a good mood and I didn't want to tell you then." (Am I always mad or in a bad mood......I hope not!)
Mom: "Well, Kyler, I'm proud of you for telling me about your assignment."
Kyler: "I'm trying to change." (said in a matter-of-fact voice.....that seemed much older than his 9 years.)
I love this boy of mine!
