I'm a Slacker

And just because I am, does not mean that my children should be. Thank You to Teresa for that enlightening advice.

The fact is, I like to sleep in. I am way more productive after 9pm than before oh, say 10am.

As for punctuality... well. I'm one of those people who thinks that stuff is all negotiable.

ANYWAY. The point of this post:

We belong to a school carpool. My carpool buddy, Maryhelen up and moved. Not just to a different neighborhood, or town, or county, no. She moved to Oklahoma. I'm not upset about it at all. sad. yes. lonely. yes. We miss them kids.

So, this year I had to find a new carpool. I'll fill you in on the great things about the carpool later, but I just wanted to show you this:

The kids got their first report cards today. William was sick one day, and went in late the next. So his absent and tardy are valid.

Maryhelen understood my slacker status. Our poor kids were never to school on time.

This new carpool is well, making me into a better Mother. Ok, well, a more punctual one.

Nice! I remember the day I learned what the word "tardy" meant. It sounded so heinous....and then I realized that I was in first grade and it was my mom's fault...not mine...Phew!
