I’ve spent the last couple of years trying to convince Morgan that she should sign her own school notes. After all, I trust her completely. She is just that kind of girl. Unfortunately, because she is that kind of girl, she refuses to sign her own school notes. It wouldn’t be right! I don’t know how I raised her this way. I was signing my parents’ signatures on my school notes starting in junior high.
She insisted I sign a note for her the other day and I realized that soon I could legitimately refuse. She will be 18 in another month. And I realized that, since she is my youngest, I’ll never have to sign a school note again for the rest of my life.
And I decided I would sign all the notes she wants for the next month without complaining. And then retire my pen.
I’m not sure yet how I feel about that!
