Show and Tell is usually on Friday. We generally forget. This week, because there is no school Thursday and Friday, Show and Tell was moved up. I told Little Miss to remind me last night so we could get it all together. Then, I wasn't feeling well. And, well, we forgot. We pull into the school parking lot, and she goes, "Mommy, we don't have Show and Tell."
So, I figure I must have something in my bag, but I check the trunk first. We decide a reusable shopping BAG starts with "B", but then I find a discarded, broken set of beads so she takes that instead. While walking inside, I also remembered that she had a book in her backpack so I also convince her that BOOK and BACKPACK also start with "B" so she was more than set.
I felt a great sense of accomplishment in the last moment before being handed the Worst Mother in the World trophy.
