11:13 am - on the phone with dad
"Hi Dad... blabbity bla bla blah.... (20 minutes later...mid sentence..) OH SHIT!! I GOTTA LET YOU GO DAD!! I JUST REALIZED... I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AT XAV'S SCHOOL TWO HOURS AGO!! HE WAS GETTING STUDENT OF THE MONTH!! (click).
I called Butch IN A PANIC!! He had the same frenzied reaction.
I called the school in hopes of showing up in time for lunch - worried the kiddo was hysterical I didn't show. (He's a very schedule minded individual HE'LL KNOW I DIDN'T GO!!.. I had 20 min or so
I raced into the nearest store and ran in circles trying to find something for him. Stuffed monkey and candy. Good enough.
Raced to the school & made it in enough time for lunch.
I was by the office when his class came by.

"Mom why are you here?"
To have lunch with you
"Why?" (with his confused look)
Did I miss something this morning?
"Nope." (even more confused)
Did you get something earlier?
"Nope"
WE HAD A PEP ASSEMBLY!! :) (the kid behind him points out)
Did you get anything?
He shrugged his shoulders like it was NO BIG DEAL and the little imp gives me puts his finger up... "Mom - you forgot to do something. You KNNNOOOOOW" (as he mimes a camera with a silly look on his face)
I'm sorry (mommy on the verge of tears)
"It's ok :)" (honestly acting like it was NO. BIG. DEAL. Even though it was STUDENT OF THE QUARTER. Which his SS teacher that night had to repeatedly rub in is a VERY. BIG. DEAL.

I sat and had a fun little lunch and he and his monkey headed to the playground like it was just. another. day.

I love that child too! he's such a ham. They are such a yin and yang. I'm glad you have 2 of them! Miss you Alfie ... we should do Skype sometime. I'm just saying. But not today, cause I have to work. Oh wait ... maybe afternoon? I'll text you.

    RANTINGS
    FROM

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
