Today was my son's poetry reading session in his first grade classroom. Parents were invited to come and listen. And of course you know who forgot. I could blame it on my husband, because he asked me to come out to lunch with him at that time. But the truth is, I would've totally forgotten about it anyway. I'm just trying to juggle too many things at once. So the young man came home very upset. "Mama," he said. "You forgot about my poetry thing." After that little bit of news hit me, I apologized profusely. "I'm sorry! I totally forgot. How did it go?" "It was fine, but now you owe me something special." Uh oh. I couldn't wait to hear what that something special would be. "You either owe me a pet red-eared slider turtle, or a Nintendo DSL." Geez! "How about something else? Those are a little out of my acceptable range." "Nope. A red-eared slider or Nintendo DSL. Otherwise I'm never going to forgive you." I guess I'm doomed.

He drives a hard bargain! ;)ReplyDelete

Oh the price we forgetful moms pay!ReplyDelete
Terrible, isn't it?Delete

He sound like a man who knows what he wants!! :)
Yes, he has turtles on his mind, and he's determined to get one.Delete
Let's hope he forgets these demands. :)ReplyDelete
Yes. But I think it's going to take a really long time for him to forget!Delete
S-H-E-R-R-Y you didn't? You DID! How could you?ReplyDelete
At school, when we have the poetry recitals, I watch the grade ones faces as they scan the audience for mom/dad's face...
I've seen too many crestfallen little faces... :(
Sorry, have to side with your son on this one! hehe!
Thanks for making me feel so much better. LOL!Delete
The little man knows how to drive a hard bargain!ReplyDelete
That he does! Just like his daddy.Delete
I think you're gonna have to go with the Nintendo - one more animal might be enough to send you over the edge! :-)ReplyDelete
LOL! But the kid already has a Nintendo DSI. He doesn't need another Nintendo anything. Maybe I can come up with something else.Delete
