Okay....more lessons learned this morning as I got Little Bear ready for Picture Day at school.
Neckties and five year olds are a really bad mix. I think I cut off the circulation to my kid's ears when I clipped that little gentleman tie on him this morning.
"Bear, eat your breakfast."
"Bear, don't sit on the dog, you'll get fur all over your suit!"
"Bear brush your teeth."
"BEAR PUT THE CAT DOWN!!! NO!!! SHE IS NOT A WINDOW WASHER!!!!"
"Okay...that is it....you are grounded from television!!"
"I'm not kidding mister...you go put your underwear on right now, peel the cat off of the window, and stop brushing your teeth with yogurt."
Okay, okay...so I am gilding the lily a bit here today...but that is what it FELT like.
So I just can not wait to see what conditin that suit is going to be in when Bear bounds off of the bus this afternoon.
Better yet...I can only imagine what his picture portrait is going to look like.
I can just see the photographer now...
