I want to get gold stars again.
Little shiny stickers so the world knows I did something well.
Today I correctly answered this tricky question on the first try:
“Mom! What’s that other word for wrong?”
“Left,” is, of course, the answer.
I think I should get a gold star for that one.
A little shine during one of my typical slapdash, seat of my pants day of mothering to remind myself to stand taller.
I know lots of things!
…just not how much toilet paper we have or where the thingamabob is or who’s got gym class today or what we are going to eat for dinner…
But I know lots of other things and so do you!
I want to get little gold stars for them again.
(And no, we don’t teach our children that being left handed is wrong or evil or that that particular direction has anything to do with the devil. Geeze what do you take me for?!?)
