Say What?

Anna approached me the other day with the following question:

"Mom, what's the 'A' word"?

Stunned, and at a loss for an explanation, (and thinking I might need to have a talk with other members of this household), I coolly replied:

"What 'A' word"?

"You know. The one we weren't allowed to say during Lent."

me: " Ohhhhhhh! Alleluia."

Alleluia indeed!


  1. There's a word for this. It's called "Defensive Mom Mode."

    I am in it quite a bit! :)
