The Honesty in Spelling Mistakes

My New Year’s resolution (to be a more patient mother) is not going so well. I lost my cool the other day when my six-year-old refused to turn off the iPad. A few minutes later, when my anger had simmered, she gave me a hand-written note:

Kids & Computers

I am a dick tid to ipads and ponse evin I am a dick did to th pone. 

Translation – I am addicted to iPads and phone, even I am addicted to the phone.

I smiled. She hit the nail on the head. She is addicted and she is a dick sometimes. I’m a dick too. For making a New’s Resolution that is doomed to fail.
