Last Minute – One-Liner Wednesday


“I need cookies tomorrow for a Christmas party at school. About 40. Maybe 50,” my son happily announced at 10pm as he went to bed.

“Tomorrow?? You couldn’t have told me this at 3 when you got home? What happens if you don’t bring them?”

“Then I can’t go.”

Sigh. No pressure.

    Ugh. And then you wonder, “Is this the time when we have a lesson in natural consequences, or I do I want to be Supermom again?” Always hard to decide!

    My son does this all the time with projects, you know the kind where you have to go out and buy 30 dollars worth of supplies, drives me crazy! And now I want chocolate chip cookies!


  3. Chips Ahoy to the rescue! Boys, eh? I’m positive I never did that to my mom!

        Not so much now. (I thank technology. The teachers my kids have had use it endlessly to update and alert! It’s annoying, but better than those last minute projects!)
        I can remember my son coming home one night, saying he needed a shoebox, sand, rocks, leaves — to make a sediment display. It was February in Indiana.:(
        I also remember my eldest daughter brushing her teeth one night, telling me she had a project due Monday, and needed some posterboard. I said, “Tomorrow is Monday.” She said, “Ooops.” So yeah, I totally relate.


  5. Oh! He is SO every child! πŸ™‚
