Dialogue of a 6th Grader & Lock-down!

G: "Mom, remember that big jerk from yesterday?"
Me: "Yes I do." (How could I forget him, I had visions of shaking my finger in his fat little face all night long!)
G: "Well, I found out why he was being such a jerk."
Me: "Oh really, why?"
G: "Well, he is dating Chantel and they weren't getting along yesterday so he was just in a bad mood. But today they broke up, so Chantel was crying all through her school pictures, now he is happy."
Me: Gave a 34 minute lecture on why we don't date until we are at least 16 years old. I would like to thank Chantel and the big jerk for giving me several great reasons for this, ie: puffy eyes on picture day.
G: Agreed wholeheartedly.

To top this off, my little 7th grader and my not-so-little 11th grader were in lock-down for a couple of hours today at their schools since we had three suspects with weapons running amok through my beloved neighborhood.

Some people are very dumb ... and they seem to be multiplying!

Good job.... even jerks can serve a purpose... As your Grandpa McKinnon often said, "Everyone has a purpose in life, even if it's to serve as a bad example!" Lock down? Scary! Haven't had one of those yet on the mountain... hope we won't!

Don't you love it when life helps you to parent? I appreciate all the help I can get being a mother. So thanks to all the "dingbats" that help me along the way.
