A Phone Call

Justin: Hello?
Me: Hi. Did you make and bring a lunch for Gavin today since he has his fieldtrip?
Justin: No. didn’t know he needed a lunch.
Me: It was on the fieldtrip sheet on the fridge. Okay…I’ll bring it. Did you grab his extra clothes for his cubby?
Justin: No.
Me: Uh, did you grab his sheets from the dryer?
Justin: No.
Me: Did you put sunblock on Gavin?
Justin: No. That’s not part of my morning routine.
Me: What? It’s summer…he needs sunblock. Alright…well, did you leave his carseat there?
Justin: No. Didn’t know I needed to leave the carseat.
Me: It was on the fieldtrip sheet on the fridge. *pause* So uh, did you bring Gavin to school?

This is a blog where I will share my adventures and mundane tasks as a work-out-of-home-mom. I now have 2 kids and my wonderful husband, so the juggling has gotten a little bit more tricky (man-on-man defense). We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats (we used to have 4) so as you can imagine, our household is pretty busy. Since I never feel like I'm being listened to, I figured I'll just start talking at the general Internet community and see what happens.



Well, yeh! He took Gavin to school because it’s in his routine. Any deviations are promptly ignored or forgotten.


Oh god! SOUNDS JUST LIKE me and Bud. Exactly.
I agree with AFF. How the hell do our kids stay ALIVE when we aren’t around?

Men are from Mars…they don’t have fieldtrips there – and they don’t need sunblock ‘cuz there is no sun.
