Last week, I was involved in a very tiny accident with Homer (my mom-mobile). Everyone is fine, and Homer only sustained a little scratch that was easily buffed out.
This morning, I told The Apples that we were taking a Field Trip to the Police Department, to pick up the police report. I asked that they be on their best behavior, and that when we left, I was going to ask them what they learned from the Sheriff's Office.
When we left the office (after being redirected to 3 different locations and quite a bit of confusion as to who actually responded to the accident and where the accident report was filed) I said, "It only counts as a Field Trip if you learned something today. Tell me one thing that you learned."
The Big Apple responded "Don't park illegally behind somebody." (Referring to the other vehicle)
"What about you, (insert Middle Apple's name)? What did you learn?
"Taking trips to the Sheriff's Office aren't much fun....so don't get your van in an accident."
Thanks for the reminder, kids.
