Mini Diva Moment

Olivia's kindergarten teacher asked us to write a letter to our kids telling them how proud we were of them for working so hard this year. They planned to open one each day up until the end of school. Today was apparently Olivia's day, as I saw her pull the letter out of her backpack in the rearview mirror as I drove her home.

"Mom," she said, looking at the letter thoughtfully, "this letter made my heart happy." Cue Mom tears - it was a genuine moment. Then, with her usual impeccable timing, she immediately reared back and punched me in the arm as hard as she could. "SLUGBUG!" she yelled, as a VW drove past the other way. Moment over.
