And now I am concentrating on getting everything organized for the big day.


Everything was going according to plan until........


At exactly 9:37pm my son walks down the stairs and says


"Mom...By the way..."(OK, we all know that nothing good follows that right?) 
"We are having a party tomorrow and we need to bring something in. Maybe you could bake something?"
Now, I am sure that he was given a note last week about the party, but since he NEVER brings notes home I am left to put on my fortune teller hat and guess....or am surprised late at night with requests for cupcakes, money orders or "reminders" that forms are due



You guys would have been so proud of me...

Naturally, I did what any other mother would do....


Bake? NO!!!

This Morning I asked my husband to buy something from our local bakery and drop it off at the school. Thank God they didn't want parents there at the party, because Lord knows my son would have told me this last minute and I may have had to go to school like this.

  1. Oh, what memories. I was constantly hit at the last minute for refreshments for a school party. I always kept cake mixes and frosting on hand. No place in my little town to buy anything ready made.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

  5. Haha! I've walked in your shoes, m'dear! I never know whether to kill my kids for asking the impossible, or be flattered that they think me capable of doing fifty things at once. LOL
