It's what I do. It served me well in the scholastic setting. Its benefits are questionable in real life. If it gets on your nerves, you're not alone. Most of the time it gets on my nerves too. But I'm stuck with me, so I decided to exercise some of it here.

Dear Spencer and Evelyn,
If Mommy seems tired (and cranky) by the end of the day, this is why.
So unhappy until...
...you've conquered it, via standing on top of it, of course.
Please don't need stitches this month. I don't think I have the emotional energy for that quite yet.
Your impressed but necessarily hyper-vigilant mommy
