When you become a parent, you slowly start to gain superpowers. For example, I hear everything that my kids (and students, for that matter) say. Most of the time, I just choose to ignore it.
Right now, I just get the feeling that Scout is going to ask me something that I am going to say no to. So what do I do? Send her a text message that simply says “nope”. Pretty sure that I do this with 99% accuracy.
I know what you’re thinking-and yes, I will be writing a book.
