It seems when I say "I'll never", the gates of the powers that be swing open, and I do the thing I said I'd never do.
When my eldest was small I said I would never let him fight. My best friend had a son who was a year older and just was an aggravating brat. One day I told my son the next time he puts a hand on you – beat the crap outta him. So much for fighting.
When my children started school I would never be one of those mothers that made a fool out of herself at school. As all of my children can attest – I blew it. Starting with the principal that I threatened to knock his head off with a baseball bat. Ending much the same manner, with the youngest. This time I was not under the influence and told the principal if he couldn't control what happened on his campus that I could and would camp out there.
Needless to say there have been many other I'll never's in my life. In the last few years it is more like I'll never do that again. At 9:32am on March 27 I am here to say….don't add that last three words to it either.
The phone rings, I check the caller ID, I do a little dance around my room……….
