You know how kid's timing is never convenient? I mean how many times has your child told you right before they go to bed that they need to bring a new white t-shirt to school in the morning for a class project? How many times did they say about an hour before the bus came..."uhh, Mom I need six empty toilet paper rollers for school today."? Well I got my turn late last night. My daughter turned to me and said, "Did you remember my cookies for my party tommorrow?" (uh..no?!?) Thinking she was confused, I said "Do you mean for your Valentines Day party for school? That's next week." And she said, "No mom, the teacher said it is this week. She said it's on Thursday." And I said "oh, okay honey. No problem!"(and freaked the heck out inside!)
BUT...of course it WAS A PROBLEM! I hadn't made the cookies, didn't have all the ingredients, and worse...the favors I've been excitedly blogging about for the last few weeks were NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING READY!
So... I raced about my kitchen making suitable cookies (taking allergies into account - since MY KID is the 'allergic kid' in the class) for 24 little kids. Then I had to bag them up so they couldn't be cross-contaminated with allergans. Okay... I was halfway there! I could do this!
That done- I headed upstairs to make the favors. I froze at my table, stared in horror at all the parts to the favors I planned and realized I was three short! It was now after 1AM and I had to have BOTH of us up in 5 HOURS to start the day! What was I going to do? I decided to totally scrap what I was going to do and start up on this new project instead!
