Mommy, when will I get my gold belt?
Not for another two to three weeks, ok?
You mean tomorrow???
No, silly girl, it's going to be about 14-21 days from now.
Way after tomorrow?
Yes, kind of.
That's too long! I want my gold belt now! Tell Sensei Dave I want my gold belt now!
You don't just get a gold belt because you want it. You have to earn it, work hard, pay attention.
Well, well, well...I've been working hard, Mommy!
That's right, you have been working hard and you will get your gold belt soon.
Various forms of the above conversation ran its course in the last couple of weeks. I'm now going to enjoy this hiatus since Munch won't be getting her next promotion until at least 24 weeks from now.
