There's a new sheriff in town, and she says
"These days, hon, I have less time than you."
"We need to be in the car by 7:30. Not 7:34. If we get in the car at 7:34, I am late for work."
"Throwing a towel down on the spot where the cat peed doesn't clean it up. All it does is say, 'Mom, clean that up!'"
I have no idea if any of this is getting through to anyone, but at least I am saying it, as kindly and firmly as I can. To paraphrase Johnny Tremain, a woman can stand up.
