Kendrie: Hey, mom, guess what. We made New Years Revolutions in class yesterday.
Kristie: Oh, really? What's that?
Kendrie: It's when you make a promise to do something for this new year.
Kristie: No, I know what a revolution is .... (too cute, how could I correct her?) What I mean is, what was yours?
Kendrie: I am going to read more, and I am going to make sure Barely always has food in her dog bowl so she won't be hungry and so she quits eating stuff around the house she shouldn't.
Kristie: Well, I think those are both really good plans.
Approximately five minutes later, Barely ate Kendrie's new mechanical pencil. ATE. IT. We were able to pry a sliver of orange plastic and an eraser nub out of her mouth.
Looks like Kendrie's New Years Revolutions aren't going any better than my own.
