An Elementary Perspective: What Does Mom Know?

When it comes to Webster attire, mom is clueless.

My daughter Julia came to live with me two years ago for school. It isn't easy for me to raise someone who is practically my nine-year-old clone, but that is exactly what I find I am doing with Julia. Through our judo and soccer practices, reading, writing and arithmetic, Girl Scouts, and Japanese language classes, we occasionally have a conversation that connects us both in a sometimes deep and usually humorous way. Hopefully, you will be as entertained as we are.


What Does Mom Know?

Julia is delivered to Daddy Monday morning before school wearing a red sweater…

Daddy:  Julia, do you know what is happening tonight?

Julia:  Um… no.

Daddy:  Well, Webster is playing Kirkwood at Kirkwood tonight for the football Division 2 championship.  What are you wearing?

(Julia looks at her red sweater and makes a terrible face)

Daddy:  Is there something you’d like to do?

Julia:  I need to get dressed in orange and black!  Is that O.K.?

Daddy:  That’s my girl!  Absolutely.
