My Inner Yoda

Working with my little guy tonight on his homework has seriously brought out my inner Yoda.  Oh, my.

"I cannot teach him.  The boy has no patience."

For goodness sake, we're apparently living in the world of distraction.  Must pet the dogs, must hug the cat, must have a (another) snack, must look up something on the phone, must go to the bathroom (again), must sneak up behind my mom and scare the heck out of her...which brings me to...

"Fear is the path to the dark side.  Fear leads to anger.
Anger leads to hate.  Hate leads to suffering."

In other words, bad idea, little dude.  Really, really bad idea.  I actually put up my dukes in response!

"Size matters not.  Look at me.  Judge me by my size do you?"

Well, he knows WAY better than that by now, for sure.  Or one would think, anyway.  After much jumping through hoops and some small bit of coercion (and perhaps a threat or two), he sits and begins putting forth effort.  I'm all about Yoda in so may ways, but I must disagree with his most famous quote.

"No!  Try not.  Do, or do not, there is no try."

Me?  I'm a big believer in the trying part.  Make a go, little dude.  This mama is in awe of you.

And now...

"Tired I am, rest I must."
