Last night Reese was in a mood. She got sent to her room for being a bit sassy at supper. And when I finally called her back down to finish eating, her apology wasn't quite as heartfelt as I was hoping it to be.
So I said, "Reese, what is going on with 'little miss attitude' tonight? That is not like you at all."
Drue smiled and piped up, "It's like me!". Obviously pleased with herself.
"What in the world?" I said. "Drue, that's not something to be proud of."
She looked confused.
"Having an attitude?" I explained, "Isn't a good thing."
A look of comprehension finally crossed her face as she said, "Ohhhhhh....I thought you said 'gratitude'!".
