Dear Caitlin,

A billion years from now, when you have your own children, I really hope you call me up one day and tell me all about how your little ones pitched a fit at you about their ice cream not being perfectly to their taste.

Because on that day, I will listen to you empathetically and I will cackle madly and tell you that you've gotten exactly what you deserve.

Being Seven sucks, but not as much as raising Seven. Look out!

Love and frustration,

Mom

I SO want to be there when it happens. I'm gonna laaaaaugh! I won't even pretend to be nice about it, either.

It does make me wonder what I did to my own mom, though.

Man, there must be a brat of the year contest going between our children. If I hear the phrase "Yeah but," one more time I am going to donate all her toys to charity and feed her Halloween candy to the homeless.

Kristi: Oh, I don't even wanna think about the teen years! Don't be mean!

Misty: Yeah, but...she's just 7! Isn't she ALLOWED to be a PITA? Gaah!

Jennifer: Laughter will be sweet when it's tempered with years of them being grown up and out of the house, eh?
