Red Letter Day, almost the whole day long

Once, a few years ago Galadriel (a teenager of 13 years) told me her humble mother that I was right about something.  I was elated, I was overjoyed, I was ecstatic.  I never thought I would be given a more perfect and beautiful compliment.  Then yesterday happened.

Galadriel:  I worked on my assignment at school and I saved it at school, but when I tried to go back to it, it wasn't there.

Puff: You could have emailed it to yourself and it would have been saved on sky-drive, or how about using the USB flash drive you know, that's hidden in your pink pen

Galadriel: Yeah, that's a smart idea.

Puff: Hold up, did you just call me smart

Galadriel (Backpeddling) No, I just said you had a smart idea.

Puff:  This is a red letter day, my daughter just called me smart, uh-ha oh, yeah, uh ha oh yeah.

Galadriel: No I didn't

Puffgiving her a look;  Come on admit it.

Galadriel Okay I called you smart

*********

Later walking home with Arwen after school

Puff: I am still happy about Galadriel calling me smart.

Arwen  Well it's not like your stupid.

Arwen's comment cracked me up :) At least your kids think you're smart, mine thinks she's smarter than me. She started admitting it at age two. I kid you not.

Um Mary, I will draw your attention to the fact that Arwen said I wasn't stupid, she did NOT say that I was smarter than her.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
