Boys Bedroom. Poor cherub 2, getting sick. I am rubbing his back, holding the bowl.
Cherub 1: Mom, I can't find the word in the dictionary. I can't find ANY of the words!
Me: Honey, your brother is getting sick. Hold on one second and I'll help you.
Cherub 1: But I can't find any of them!
(Thinking to myself- is she STILL talking? Does she NOT see what is going on around her??)
Me: I really can't do this right now. Go pick another spelling activity and give me a minute to help him, then I will help you.
Cherub 1: But there isn't another activity. The other ones take FOREVER!
Me: Seriously. Not now! Can you see your brother is sick????
Cherub 1 storms off. After calming poor cherub 2, I find cherub 1 asleep, homework all over her. Not done.
