Ramona's career counseling

This morning after we dropped Beezus off at school, I saw a car illegally pull into the teacher's parking lot.  Please note that this parking lot is directly in the path of the area where children are legally dropped off from their cars.  Not the best plan, I know, but our school is leftover from the days when all of the children who attended the school could walk there.

The small, blue SUV discharged the child passenger and then started to pull out without looking.  The car had to slam on the brakes to keep from hitting one of Beezus' classmates.  I saw the whole thing, checked on the child, and then chased after the small, blue SUV dragging Ramona along behind me.  I caught up to the driver about 20 feet away where she was waiting to make a turn out of the parking lot.  I motioned to her to roll down the window, and she didn't, so I yelled as she pulled away.

As Ramona and I were walking home, Ramona turned to me and said, "You know, Mommy, you would make a great police officer.  You could stand around and give tickets to people who do the wrong thing."

I'm thinking that she is really intuitive for a 4 year old to know the desires of my heart !

Don't worry because one day you will see them drop off or pick up again and you'll get your chance.
