Just another Monday
I used to be more of a "morning person", but now mornings are just way too hectic. Without a doubt Monday mornings are the craziest. Today L had to take coins to school, which of course I forgot all about until 8am (30 minutes before we had to run out the door). I searched everywhere around the house and gathered almost all the ones I needed. I had 25 pennies - 4 quarters - 20 dimes, but I only had 17 nickles, therefore 3 were missing. I figured I would probably have 3 nickles in the car, so I told L to put the bag of coins in her back pack while I packed her lunch and we headed out the door. When we got to school, as I waited in the line of cars, I found the 3 nickles and told L to put them with the other coins. That's when she told me "Mommy I cant because the bag isn't in my back pack, its at home". Initially I told her "ok well you tell the teacher you left them at home", but then I remembered how embarrassing it was when that happened to me, so I got out of the line of cars and drove back home, ran inside grabbed the bag and then drove back to school making it just in time for her to not be late. Hectic yes! but so worth it, right before getting to school L told me "mommy you are such a good mom thank you for going back home, I love you"
