Mom always says, Post #14: “Does the sun rise and set?”

Forget “Is the sky blue?” and “Is the Pope Catholic?” If someone asks something really obvious, use this lesser-known idiom in response.

Some kid used my phone to take this picture as I drove home at sunset one evening.


Mostly forgettable movie quote (15): “But Mommy, I don’t want to go to school today. I want to stay home and bake cookies with you.” (Daffy Duck in Space Jam)

 I’ve heard this from the kids more than once to express their lack of desire to attend school (though they know I won’t be home baking cookies.)

(And I posted to reassure everyone that I’m still in the game, just not every day—well, except today! Old habits…)
