Off The Wagon

After being awake for about twenty minutes, Zoe pulled me away from Zak and Ellie.  She looked me straight in the eyes and quite somberly said, “I have thumb owie.  I sucked my thumb at bedtime.”  Sure enough the skin on her knuckle had broken.  Her guilt and shame was so overwhelming.  I assured her that it was okay, but she shouldn’t do it anymore.  I told her that she had just fallen off the wagon, and it was time to get back on.  She then proceeded to tell Zak, “I fell off wagon.”
