OK, kids are the ones that keep us fresh, right? I can vote for that with an emphatic YES.
We seem to have a daughter with an emerging case of OCD on our hands. Zoe is persistent, at times, in how things should be....as she believes they should be. The following picture makes wonderful sense after you know what she's saying. Here's how it went:
Zoe: These pacies don't match!
Me: It's ok, though. They're alright.
Zoe: I just don't understand..... (said with a very dramatic, depressive tone)
Kids: A sure-fire antidote to apathy and boredom.
