An 11year old in my 4-H club meeting and I had this conversation today when the 4-H officers were done leading the business meeting.
Kid: “Ms Waters? Can I have your gavel?”
Me: “No. Why do you want it?”
Kid: “Because I’m going to court tomorrow”
Me: “Court? How come?”
Kid (Looking down): “I dunno”
Me: “Ha-ha, Speeding ticket?”
Kid: “No” (a huge grin spreading across his face) “Tomorrow, I’m getting adopted!”
I congratulated him and high fived him.
**all the feelings** Seriously, put some things in perspective for me.
It was also a 4-H baking contest day….so I had a “healthy” breakfast….you know. Gotta taste them to judge them….it’s FOR THE CHILDREN! Hahaha.
My “real” children matched today. They are a mess! Mostly Claire. Claire is a mess.
Speaking of Claire… I asked her to pick up the candy, sock and toy she threw on the floor. It appears she decided not to.
Thanks for reading, friends.
