I've learned to come equipped with books, electronics (portable DVD player, hand-held gaming devices, etc.) Oh, and snacks are a MUST. Popcorn seems to be a favorite, in case you were wondering.
Today the girls got a little bonus when our school registrar gave them an expired First-Aid kit. A couple rounds of "school nurse" only lasted about 20 minutes, but it was a glorious 20 minutes.
Amanda finally hunkered down with a Nancy Drew book, which meant that Megan needed attention. She asked for a pen and some scratch paper. Pretty soon I began getting notes ...
Note #1) I'm hungry MOM.
I verbally replied: Well, you haven't you eaten your lunch yet, so you can have that.
Note #2) NO I Can't.
I then suggested that she get a granola bar out of my drawer.
Note #3) Thank you.
About 15 minutes later ...
Note #4) When are we going to are house!!!!!!!
Me: 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Note #5) Can I wach a move?
I assumed she meant that she wanted to watch a "movie", not watch some of her mom's cool "moves".
I was right (her loss).
Sigh. 2 days down; 3 to go ...
