A ticket on Mother's Day

Well yesterday was Mother’s Day, and after lunch we left to head to my in-law’s house. Well about a mile away from my house I got pulled over for a speeding ticket. I was going 53 in a 35. Now everyone in the known universe speeds this stretch of road, so it’s not like it was out of the ordinary, but it was a holiday speed trap, so I was caught.

The funny thing is that we had to explain this all to the four-year-old. How I had broken a rule, and the police officer had to write me a ticket. She seemed to get everything pretty well after a thorough explanation.

So, I get the ticket and proceed to my in-laws. When we pull in the driveway, my daughter states:

"Wow we get here really fast when Daddy speeds."

Yes dear…yes we do πŸ™‚
