A Teenage Parent’s Average Sunday

view from the dashboard

7:00am (sleeping in time) –  I awake to realize my son drank the last of the milk.

7:15am – Trip to the grocery store number 1.

11:00am – I realize we have just used the last of the butter, and I need rice for dinner.

12:15pm – Trip to the grocery store number 2.

2:50pm – “Mom, here’s my gym clothes from my bag and my sweats need cleaning.” No problem.  Go to pantry.  Only 1/8th cup of laundry detergent remains.

3:00pm – Trip to the grocery store number 3.

4:30pm – “Mom, I don’t have enough colored pencils anymore.  I need more green for my project and I just used up the last of the green.”  “So you need more colored pencils?! When is this project due?”  “Tuesday morning mom . . .”

4:45pm – Trip to store next to the grocery store with son.  Does this count as number 4?  Even though it’s a different store?

7:00pm – “Mom?”  “Yes?” “I think I need a binder for Biology and I am almost out of paper . . .”  “Do you have to have it tonight?”  “I should, but I can make due until Tuesday.”

Thank God.  Because I was going to have to kill myself.  When does he get his driver’s license?

Until next time –

    i went to the store yesterday and completely forgot why i went. I walked around the store and got the weekly stuff for lunches, and got home and realized what I missed, and had to go back – happens to me all the time!
