Batman announced last week at dinner that his school would be having a lockdown drill. He proceeded to tell us all about what he had been told he would experience. There were, apparently, some aliens and clone troopers involved. That's one hell of a lockdown drill, kid. He was somewhat less enthusiastic when it was over. Apparently, the clone troopers didn't show. Bummer.
I hate that my children live in a world where they have to participate in lockdown drills, and I pray they will never have to participate in a real lockdown. I would trade my soul with the devil for them not to be the reason for the lockdown.
When does parenting get easier?
