All Jokes Aside

Let the record reflect that I am actually quite pleased with my parenting decision on Friday. As it happened, I had two swallows of coffee left in my coffee mug, and I appreciated the opportunity to drink them in comparative peace. I also appreciated the honesty my son had shown me, and he seemed to appreciate the opportunity to indulge in some harmless “mischief.” By the time I was done with my coffee, he had used the washable marker to put about half a dozen small green polka dots on one of his legs, and was quite pleased with himself and happy to comply when I told him that was enough.

All in all, I call that a win-win.
