I Love This Debutante

Yes, she may be lazy.
But I learned something tonight.
When Michelle is determined to do something, it's a great idea to tack on a couple of chores for her in her momentum.
For example, tonight she really wants to eat peppermint icecream and watch the Wire. So I encouraged her in her to follow her desires. I let her borrow my blockbuster card and told her she could use my free rental. (But I also gave her my other movie to return that's way overdue). And I encouraged her to go to the Smith's and buy some iced cream. (But I also told her to buy some light bulbs while she's there). See? Everyone wins. She's out there. Right now. No, not on the couch. Out in the world. Doing important stuff!
