Show and tell

Well . . . deposit another $100 into my kids' "future therapy fund" . . .

Bo has show and tell on Tuesdays. I haven't remembered the last 2 weeks. (In my defense, Tru and Caroline always had it on Thursdays AND they were both very on top of show and tell AND it had to use the letter of the week so for some reason it was easier to remember.)

Anyway, when I picked him up today, I asked how his day had been.

Bo: "It was good."

Me: (with panicked realization.)"BO! I'm SO SORRY! I forgot about show and tell."

Bo: "Yeah. Der was no show and tell in my back pack."

Me: "I know, buddy, I'm so sorry! What did you do?"

Bo: "Der was no show and tell in my back pack so I showed dem my fingers and knees."

I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time.

And maybe I did.

And then I put a reminder in my phone for Tuesday mornings.

And then I went overboard praising his creativity.

  1. Injuries are also good for show and tell, I'm told. Lance makes up stories about his. Sometimes this is problematic!
