Quote of the Day


more love and logic

Yesterday as we were about half-way to school, Chickadee asked Dandy, "Where is your backpack?" Whoops. No backpack. No lunch. No warm layer of clothing for recess. And, no, I didn't turn the car around.

This morning, Dandy gets up and gets his backpack all assembled and puts it smack dab in front of the door we use to exit the house.

Me: What are you doing honey?
Dandy: I don't want to forget it again.
Me: Good thinking hon.
Dandy: Mom, if I forget it again, will you bring it?
Me: Nope.
Dandy: Cause you want me to learn to remember it?
Me: Yup.
Dandy: Okay.

I love it that he gets it: that learning to be responsible trumps getting bailed out.
