Get Your Act Together

“When I think back at the pandemonium your antics have caused, I feel terrified. Let me be blunt with you. I get zero satisfaction for having to break this news to you, but the hard truth is that people don’t find your garrulous nature to be nearly as precious as you seem to think it is,” Amanda said.


“No buts about it, young man,” Amanda said. “Your first grade teacher called and you’re suspended for three days. You need to get your act together, mister.”

“Yes, Mom. Sorry.”

    Her words were taken right from the book “Directions for Moms with Boys in First Grade.”

    I know because I wrote the book. 😉
