My life is starting to feel like Groundhog Day.

Yesterday a second grader sat down on the (off-limits) rocking chair, picked up my book, and flung it aside. Calmly I told him I don't like it when he throws my books. He denied it. I repeated myself. So he called me -- direct quote -- a "stinking liar."

Sometimes I just stand there and think, This is what I got a master's degree for?
