Amazing how a shirt can cause such havoc in the morning.
We were in the living room at 7:45. 30 minutes before we were to leave for school and what does my son do?
He takes his shirt off and tells me it needs to be washed for school.
Okay - so I am telling myself not to overreact. I take the shirt and run to the washer, throw it in, put the washer on warm warm and start it. There is a reason I used warm warm - that is because the filture must be plugged up on the cold and it takes forever for the water to fill to the correct level.
I go back and tell son that he is going to school and he says: "I know." Once done I through it in the dryer with a dry towel. After 10 minutes I throw in another dry towel and call the school and tell them he is going to be a little late. I also emailed his teacher the same.
The second dry towel did the trick. I grapped the shirt and tossed it to him. Of course he had to check to make sure it was totally dry, and then he put it on. I wanted to say Ha Ha I know it has to be dry everywhere.
And then after prayer we were off to school.
I'll gladly let him stay home on Mondays if it means that signing a contract will get him to school the rest of the week without a fuss.
From my world to your world.....
