The Confidence of Youth


Last week Scorch had school pictures.  When he got home, I asked him if was the most handsome boy in his class?

“Umm…yeah, aren’t I always?”


Tonight we finished reading Junie B Jones is Captain Field Day before bed.  Spoiler alert- Room 9 loses almost all their field day races. We got talking about how Room 9 was not happy about losing everything and were being sore losers. He asked what that meant, so I asked him how he felt when he lost when playing games.

“You know, I don’t think I’ve ever lost a single thing I’ve played!”

Ah…to be so young and so full of yourself!
