Every year usually during the last few weeks of school I send in Goodies for my Son's birthday. You see every kid that has a summer birthday celebrates it with their classmates in June.
Since its hot; I send those thick yummy Carvel ice cream flying saucers.
Teacher tells me to send in a treat on Thursday...(remember this) THURSDAY.
OK, so I go to Carvel around 1:30pm and drop off the snack at 2pm ( their snack time) in fourth grade it is very uncool for Moms to hang out in the classroom...just drop off and go that's the only option.
My son comes home from school at 3:20pm and I ask about the treats I dropped off.
I know what your thinking ...and the answer is no, they didn't forget to give it to the class. They did; right on schedule at 2pm.
My son says "they were delicious" and that "everyone loved them" and like always he takes out his lunch bag and gives it to me to clean out. Can't have leftover PB&J there all weekend right?
OK, I know you are waiting for the whamo to this story, because if you have been reading this blog long enough you know there is always some kind of Whamo.
OK, Friday is a trip day for him. No need for back packs. The whole forth grade class went to the city to see a children's show and they all had a great time. I was one of the chaperones and came home exhausted but glad I shared that day with my son.
Saturday we celebrated an early Father's day with uncles and Grandpa and it was a wonderful day filled with family laughs and love and great food! exhausted yet again.
Sunday we celebrated Father's day and it was awesome.
Monday morning the kids are dragging a bit, but that's the story every Monday. I make my son his lunch and hand him his lunch bag. His book bag is relatively empty. There is no homework or papers being sent home lately since the school year is almost over. He opens his bag and gives me this look
He pulls out a plastic bag containing the leftover ice cream flying saucer sandwiches from his class B-day celebration on THURSDAY!!!! He's had melted ice cream in his back pack for three 1/2 days!
OK Loser Mom award goes to...........
Wait, before I make my acceptance speech could one of you please tell me...why would anyone send melted ice cream that has been out for an hour and a half (snack time 2pm) (son off the bus and home by 3:20pm) back home in a school bag?
My son didn't know it was packed in his bag. It was under his spare gym clothes.
and why after years of ALWAYS checking his backpack would the one day that I didn't bring me this little surprise.
OK...I would like to thank my agent and all the people who voted for me...........
