Sometimes You Just HAVE To Laugh

You can tell when a kid is not ready for the weekend to be over! This afternoon, my youngest apparently fell asleep after school. I am in the kitchen making dinner (yes I do do that) and have several pots and pans going at one time. One of her friends calls and, without answering,  I shout upstairs for her to pick up the phone.

All of a sudden she appears in the kitchen and begins to make her lunch for school tomorrow, her clothes are changed and she has her coat on. I ask what she’s doing and she replies, “Why are you making that?”.

I explained it was for dinner and she was all sorts of confused.

Then it dawned on me. She was awakened from her slumber at 6:22PM and thought it was morning and time for school!  She was all set to go in record time!

Still snickering–sometimes kids really do keep you young at heart!

  1. Oh, she must have been pooped! How old is your youngest now?

    And just as importantly, what was for dinner? I made an amazing spinach lasagna last night… but the kid had only two bites. Ugh.

    She’s 11 and it was hysterical. She was so confused, her brother is paying a video game, the dog is looking for a treat (a big no no in the mornings) and Dad is cooking dinner and her whole world was just not right!

    Dinner was a compilation to assuage different appetites–chicken breasts and french fries, a very tasty hearty appetizer that looks like cat vomit, french onion soup, and a salad from a bag!

    I can feel for her. I did this as an adult! Got all the way to the 24 hour time clock before I realized it was pm, not am.
