My children scare me.
It is not enough that I am college educated, made straight A’s throughout all my schooling, and I am good at Scrabble – I still feel really inept when I am pitted against my children. Sure, they are 9 and 7, but they scare the heck outta me ! Just the other day my youngest asked about the Grim Reaper. He was scared that the GR was real. Trying to reassure him, I said the GR is not real. He is just a joke. Well, my 9-year-old informed us both that the GR is NOT comical, he is mythical.
That stopped me in my tracks. Nuff said?!
