Kids are funny

Ten-year-old Olivia tried out for something and was told a decision might be made three days ago. For the last three days, she has been constantly asking me to check my email. Or, she'll go to my computer and check it for me: morning, afternoon, and evening.

I told her a watched pot doesn't boil but that advice went right over her head.

Today, she wrote me during a break in school. Getting emails from my daughter always amuses me. 

The following email sums up what it's like to be nagged by a child:

SUBJECT LINE:

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

That's it. Just every verbal whiny moment, encapsulated in written form. 

Parents will laugh. Non-parents will be scared. 

Aah. I just love my kid.
