This morning my 4th grader's teacher asked me if he's been working in his spelling book at home. I said, "I haven't seen a spelling book. When was he supposed to have been working on it?" She said, "Everyday". WHAT??? Upon searching the backpack, I've also learned there's a frog assignment due this week, as well as a few pages of homework that were "forgotten" at the school over the weekend.
While I was picking up said 4th grader, my 2nd grader decided to be sick when she was supposed to be writing spelling words... but was well enough to work ahead on her math SAT prep and she "printed out the grades for you too, mama." Nevermind that I don't know which section they belong to.
My youngest boy has made our living room Legoland AND as soon as I got home had to tell me detail by detail about all the pieces and their many inspector gadget uses. Sugar has just now been banned to the back porch for a tinkle time-out. And hubby needs to know if I dropped off the taxes at the accountants office while I was out.
and don't even think about mentioning that I still haven't painted the kitchen or used the pink appliance paint =)
