You know those 'ah-ha' moments that Oprah and people like her talk about? Those moments when something you didn't know before suddenly becomes stunningly clear?
Well, I had one of those moments tonight.
I was picking up my children's discarded coats from the back hall floor and I asked my ticked off self, when my kids would finally be old enough to come in the door and hang their coats up themselves.
And then I thought to myself, they probably won't do it until they have to pay for their darn coats themselves.
I think I'm right.
I'm sorta depressed by the thought mind you, but I think I'm right.
Is nine years old too young for me to force my child to get a job to pay for her own clothes?
I thought so.
