WHY I'M COMPLETELY LOSING IT
6:00 - 9:00 AM:
"Mooooooooom!"
"Mooooooooom! (Repeated incessantly until I make an appearance in his room.)
"Good morning, Rojo! How are you today?"
"Can we go to Walgreens?"
"Maybe later. So, how are you today?"
"Can we go to Walgreens today at 9:oo AM?"
"I don't know. Let's get up, have some breakfast, and we'll talk about what's happening today."
"Can we go to Walgreens at 9:00 AM today and get Gripz?"
"I will look at our schedule when we go downstairs. I will tell you what time we can go to Walgreen's."
"Can we go to Walgreens at 9:00 AM today and get two boxes of Gripz?"
"Probably."
"Don't forget!"
"I won't forget."
"You won't forget?"
"No, I won't forget."
"Why won't you forget?"
"Because I have a sense you'll remind me."
"You won't forget to go to Walgreen's at 9:00 AM to get two boxes of Gripz?"
"No."
"Don't forget!"

Oh My God! I think you might need less coffee and more valium!

What are Gripz? I think I might want some. Will you get me some when you go at 9am?

lala said...

I want to come to Walgreens with you. What time will you be there-- 9?

Lala,

He's all yours tomorrow! Have fun, and stock up on earplugs and Gripz, in the meantime!

P.S. Gripz are some nasty version of Cheez Its!

See...and I call myself a mother. I didn't know what Gripz were either and I just frecently igured out what an Otter Pop is.

It's so hard to keep up with the kiddie culture these dayz.

I don't know how you do it.

Someday that perseverence will pay off big time for him, and your patience will ensure your sainthood. Hope the trip to Walgreen's was uneventful. God forbid they should be out of Gripz!

I think Walgreens opens at 10am

If I have the timing right I don't think anyone in your household was at Walgreens at 9:00.........I bet he was on to something more fun likes "You Are The Father"! I think that needs its own blog.

Helpful hint #1: tell him "yes, walgrens, 9:00 a.m."

Walgrens at 9 for two grips...check, double check.

Tag on...and I love you.

I won't forget, and I love you.
I won't forget, and I love you.
I won't forget, and I love you!

You are doing great and I love you.
