How to Drive a Car

"I don't wanna go to school, mom."

"I understand, but I need you to go to school, babe. It's your job. Just like Daddy and I have jobs to do."

"But I don't wanna go to school, mom!"

"Hmm. Well, what do you want to know, Colin?"

There was a pregnant pause as he considered this while sucking on his spoon. Suddenly alert, he looked up at me. "How to drive a car!"

"Cool! Did you know that you have to learn how to read before you can learn to drive a car?"


"Yeah, there's a book you have to read about how to drive a car, and you have to be able to read all the signs on the street, too."


"So, how 'bout we get ready for school?"
