It's quite a humbling experience to get caught doing something wrong in front of one's children. But about four years ago, that's just what happened.
The kids and I were traveling home from a soccer game when blue lights flashed in my rearview window. I glanced down. Uh oh. While we were laughing and talking about the game, the speedometer needle had crept upwards without my realizing it.
The kids were shocked: Mom was getting pulled over by a police officer.
Of course, they laughed about it later, and they still won't let me forget it.
