Sometimes, sometimes, it's not bad news....,

8:05 AM
Matt's due on the school bus in five and I'm due out the door in eight.
He shoves a folder and a paper under my nose, hands me a pen, and says, "I need it signed."

Now, any parent knows this is a convenient dodge for getting a sign off on a bad score. The silent bells and whistles go off. I grab the pen and take a quick look.
It's a 100 !

Go Matt !!!

.... now if only I could get him to not hand me these things in the morning.
.... .... I might just as well expect him to keep the floor of his room cleared without being reminded.
