Did you know... can have happiness delivered right to your front door?

It comes in a box that looks like this:

Problem Child

AJ got in trouble at school today. She came home from school with a note from her gym teacher, Coach Barber. The note included - and I quote - "lack of self-control" and "excessive talking".
