Our little apple didn't fall too far

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once and a while, you could miss it.
 ~ Ferris Bueller

When I was 16, I thought Ferris Bueller was cool.  When I was 19, I thought I'd met a guy like Ferris.  He could talk his way into things, out of things and eventually, even talked me into marrying him!

An advantage to marrying a clever guy is that you may give birth to a son who is quite clever. 
Alternately, you run the risk of giving birth to a son who thinks he is quite clever--or thinks his mom is new.

I'm not new and I'm not this mom.

Clever is only good when your kids use it on someone other than you. :-)

My son is very clever but he is honest. Funny, he didn't see the humor in Ferris Bueller, kid is far too...stuffy.

Couldn't agree more!

Clever and "stuffy" are good qualities in a son, right? ;)
My daughter is the one who is a little more...reliable. She doesn't see the point of missing school if you aren't sick, SICK. The MAKEUP WORK! For the love of Pete, the make-up work! ;)

Uh oh, clever is a risky quality to have sometimes. I'm glad you are not Ferris' mom, or Principal for that matter :)
