Let me tell you what I did this morning...(some days I think my elevator can't get out of the basement). As I was stuffing the kids lunch boxes into their backpacks, I had to take Zack's notebook out because everything was just crammed in there. You know how boys are! I looked inside his notebook to remove his school papers and what did I find? Well, I read a handout that said spring pictures were on Tuesday, March 24. Yikes! So, you know me, I had to get Zack out a different outfit (Bailey's was fine for pics), I had to iron both of their clothes. I had to help them with their hair. All the while, Zack is complaining that he doesn't like the shirt I picked out...the sleeves are too tight...yada, yada, yada. Bailey is complaining because I want to flat iron her hair. I don't usually do this for Bailey's hair. However, it tends to get a little wild because she has a natural wave and on picture days I try to tame it! Zack, of course, has a cowlick which a torrential rain could not make lay down. It's just one of those crazy mornings! We complete our tasks with five minutes to spare before the bus arrives.
I put the kids on the bus with a kiss and a wave, came back in the house, poured myself a cup of coffee, and was feeling very satisfied that I pulled it all together. I began straightening all those papers I pulled from Zack's notebook. I glance over that hated handout once more and guess what? Spring pictures are Wednesday, March 25. UUUUUgggghhh! I have no idea what happened to the handout I read an hour earlier, but I'm certain little elves have come in and replaced the handout I read to torture me! Oh boy, am I ever going to hear about this when the kids get home?!?! Oh well, some days you just have to smile. At least they looked pretty for today!
Happy Tuesday! Right?
