My Sister Beth: What's wrong?
Me: I'm sitting here next to Ellie. She's glued to the TV watching Barney while eating a Happy Meal. I can now literally cross every last thing off my list of Things I Will Never Allow My Kids to Do. I think part of my soul just died.
Beth: Lighten up. Nobody likes an overachiever.
Me: I knew I could count on you to make me feel better.
Beth: You're welcome.
