How do you "roll?"

OK, I will try to make this quick, it's getting late and I still have a million things to do before I can lay my head on the pillow tonight. I would have done this sooner, but I just got back from Walmart. CRAZY! They are remodeling our store...need I say more???? I absolutely can't find ANYTHING!!! What use to take 30 minutes, now takes me an hour and a half!!! I would have gone tomorrow to the store, but my "dear, sweet, adorable" nephews (I wrote this sentence just for you sis!) are coming tomorrow to stay with us for a few days. My sister is a master at shopping with a van full of kids, I don't like shopping with my two, let alone adding three more to the great big adventure we like to call WALMART!

I know, I know...I said I would make this quick, and then I started rambling. Sorry! Anyway, I had a cute story to share about Jordan...

We were in the car today and we started talking about the new school year coming up. Jordan is a little nervous, because 3rd grade was not his best year and he really wants to do better. He said, "Mom, I liked my teacher, but she just wouldn't explain anything. She would tell us she was only going to explain things once, and sometimes I felt I needed more help." To which I replied, "Jordan, I think you are going to have a great 4th grade year..." Jordan then stated, "Well, I hope those 4th grade teachers explain things better, 'cause the third grade teachers sure didn't and I just don't roll like that!"

I started laughing secretly. It was so cute. I wanted to ask him, "How do you roll?" But we were having a great conversation and I didn't want to lose the moment. Truth is there are so many days I get frustrated too. Wouldn't it be great if you could just say to the problems of this world, "Hey, go away! I just don't roll like that!"
