Backseat Driver

The other day I found myself explaining the rules of the road to a four year-old.

Well I'm allowed to turn right on a red because there are no cars coming and uh...well...because the policemen said it was O.K.

I can still go when the light is yellow. Sometimes yellow means slow down, sometimes it means I can keep going before the light turns red.
(yeah yeah yeah....save it)

And then I give up. She's four. Simplifying traffic laws is surprisingly difficult.

But let me back track. The only reason I'm doing such a thing is because I'm chided, scolded, reprimanded if I don't go ONLY when the light is green.

Mommy, you have to wait until the light is GREEN!! Oooooh. Okay. Gotcha. What would I do without her? :)

In other news....

See the blades? They just ain't turnin'

Our air conditioning is broken. Peeeeerfect timing. It's August. It's hot. Duh.

Our management company is on top of things but first they have to send out a few different companies to gather estimates....over the next few days. Uh ok, we'll just be waiting here in the interim.....melting.

Yikes! Sorry about the air conditioner. No fun :( Love the picture of diva in the backseat.

I've tried to explain traffic laws also. Nicholas accuses me of speeding whenever I accelerate. Even if it's from 25 to 35 mph. SHEESH!

Sounds familiar. In the CRV, Tucker could see the speedometer, so if he saw the speed limit posted and saw that I wasn't going EXACTLY 40 mph, I'd be in for it. I also was just explaining to him the other day about what police officers did to you when they pull you over.

Sorry about the air. Yuck.
