Guilt

Yesterday Morning:

"Time to go to school, guys!"
"Can you make me a lunch real quick? I have a field trip today."
"Can you adjust my bike helmet? It feels scratchy."


This Morning:

"Okay, guys! Time to go to school!"
"Oh, darn! I just remembered one more page of math homework I gotta do!"
"I forgot to tell you I need new shoelaces. These ones snapped yesterday."


Tomorrow Morning:

"Mom, we were late for school again yesterday. You should make us leave earlier."

Oh.
Right.
Because *I'm* the one holding up the show.

GET OUT!

"I can't find my (insert nearly anything here)!"

Ah yes, I think this is the case for families all around the world. I often wonder if my offspring will ever be able to go to college or hold down a job successfully when the only person they can blame their tardiness on is themselves. Sigh.

Lemon Stand: *sigh* You know they'll be right on time when they finally don't have us holding them back.
