When The One Who Knows Everything gets in trouble at school...it's shame on him!!
Later in the week, when The One Who Gets Away With Murder gets in trouble at school...it's shame on him, AND shame on the cosmos for giving me two little brats to deal with.
Then, when very soon after the first two do, The One Who Doesn't Say Much lands herself in trouble at school...it's shame on me. Aaaaaand shame on the cosmos just a little, because I'm not going down alone...eh-eh. That's not how I roll!!
All three of my brood acting up at school can only mean one of two things:
1. I'm not doing my job very well at all...and my offspring are trying to tell the world, "Hey, my mom sucks...I can act like an asshole and there is nothing anyone can do about it!"
2. I've done my job extremely well, and using their above average intelligence to realize that they outnumber good ole mom and dad, they have formed a coup d'etat...and the little shits plan to take over the house.
To protect my dignity and reputation, I'm leaning toward #2.
