After our movie, K was having a quiet play with her teddies/stuffed puppies so I thought I'd put on one of my 30 minute lectures from the Teaching Company. Of course, she then had to start crawling all over me and proclaimed in a very loud voice, "This is booorrring". I replied that I really enjoyed it and that I was learning. To which she came back immediately with, "But I thought Mums know everything!" It was so quick and very funny.
It has been a running joke in our house for years that Mums know everything. The boys were always surprised when they did something sneaky and I knew about it. I would just say mysteriously, "Mums know everything". And I would always add if I didn't know something I always knew where or how to find it. So the legend lives on with my daughter and, yet again, my words are coming back to haunt me.
