In the meantime, PrettyPrettyPrincess was at her fathers doing homework. We had just been seated at Brick Oven Pizza (way good by the way) and I get a text from her.
PrettyPrettyPrincess: Hey. I'm trying to write a poem. I need your help. What rhymes with "leaves"?
ME: Um. Believes. Sheaves. Heaves. I dunno. Go to Rhymezone.com
PPP: Ok. Thanks. Will do.
I thought all was well, and began to look at the menu. Oooh! A pizza "feast" for one includes a salad AND a trip to the Pasta Bar in Addition to a mini personal pizza! Hmm.... should I?
But, my thoughts were then interrupted by a follow-up text.
PPP: What does "heaves" mean? I think it's a verb, but that's all I know.
~Now, at this point two things come to my mind. 1) This explanation will take longer than I have the patience to send in a text. and 2) I want pizza.
ME: Look it up. Dictionary.com
PPP: Ok. Haha. You keep telling me to look online. K, Thanks. Love You!
ME: Yes. Correct. I am teaching you self-reliance. Go Me!
Yes folks. That's what I call A-1 parenting. It's how I do.
Haha! I may just get nominated for MOTY yet!
