Ornery

I used to think that God had blessed me abundantly with patience. Then He blessed me with three little kids.

Lately, I've been hearing out of the emotional mouth of my 5 year old,
"Mom, you're ornery!"

Wait! I thought I was patient, and kind, and loving, and FUN...!

So, I guess this is it. I've turned over a new leaf. A brown, dried up, crusty leaf called "ORNERY."

(And all this time I just thought it was my kids that were ornery.)

He he he. My kids would probably tell me that too if they knew that word.

I don't know where that came from because you really are the most patient person that ever lived. I think Aiden meant to say, that Jane, now SHE is ornery!

Oh, I have NEVER seen you ornery, you are so patient! The million dollar question is: Are the kids ornery because mom is ornery OR is mom ornery because the kids are?
