June 2014 – Riding in the car the other day, I casually said to Drew, “You didn’t even brush your teeth before we left, did you?”
Don’t freak out and call me a bad parent…remember he IS a 12-year-old boy!! Gram, however, felt the need to instruct him, once again, on proper hygiene.
Gram: “Drew, you have got to brush ALL of your teeth. AND you HAVE to use soap!”
Drew: “I AM NOT GONNA USE SOAP ON MY TEETH!!! MOM!! Hand me a wrench so I can fix that loose screw in Gram’s brain!!!”
<sigh> Watch those literal interpretations!
