aka The Frazzled Mom
10 Yr Old: I need a time when you got angry.
Me: A kid scratched my Frank Sinatra picture in Junior High.
10 Yr Old: Who?
Me: Doesn’t matter.
10 Yr Old: What’d you do?
Me: I slammed my history book on top of his head.
10 Yr Old cracks up at this “comedy gold”.
10 Yr Old: Okay. Now I need a time when you showed empathy.
Me: Uh….. Um….
Seriously?? Not one example would pop into my mind. I am empathetic! I just could not think of when. Which is great for a 10 year old to see: Mom struggling to come up with a time when she showed kindness and empathy to someone.
