Too Soon

On the way home from school on Tuesday, I was particularly tired after my crazy weekend and said so to the kids.

"You're always tired at this time of day, mom," Big Kid pointed out (accurately).

"No! I'm tired because I've been doing 3.5 hours of yoga a day! I had a big weekend!"

"That's true. I feel sorry for you," he allowed.

"Don't feel sorry for me! Hard work is good! Think of how strong I'll be!"

"If you don't snap first," he added, matter-of-factly.

"Big Kid!"

"I'm not saying you're gonna snap. You probably won't. You could though...I think it's a little soon to be sure you won't."

He has a point, I suppose.

I'm guessing we're talking snapping mentally and not physically?

He's so pragmatic it just slays me. He's right, though-you're still young. There's time. And if you don't eventually snap, I'll have to find another crazy old lady to fill the other rocking chair on my future porch. And who wants that?
