I had to define “procrastination” for Olivia. Nine, you know. It happens a lot.
It was a conversation triggered by “what not to do” because there’s a whole lot of school-prep-frenzy in the morning, when there really doesn’t need to be. *sigh* Parenting.
I guess I’ve never used that exact word before? “It’s when you wait until the last minute to do something,” I said.
“You mean like when you make me pack for a trip a month ahead, and Daddy packs an hour before?” she verified.
“Yes, that. Exactly that,” I affirmed.
That is a bit of an exaggeration, but that’s the gist. That’s pretty much our entire personalities, illustrated through the example of trip packing.
Funny how a child can sum up the whole of you with one little sentence.
