One morning, not so long ago...
Oddly, Adlyn wasn't the first one awake. Brooks, Zach, and I were up and getting ready for work and school. Adlyn comes into the room, obviously frustrated and grumpy.
Adlyn: "Mom, why you keep beating me up?"
Mom: (Puzzled, but knowing what she really meant.)
Adlyn: "Mom, sometime I want to beat you up!"
Mom: "Adlyn, you are almost always the first one up, today you just slept a little longer."
I'm sure that to an outsider, that conversation sounded horrible!
