Sunday night, December 19th, was the day before Griffin's winter break started. That night I had a great idea!
I was going to drive around the corner to the school and park where it would be possible to see the faces of all the parents, who forgot the break had started, and were dropping their kids off.
Wouldn't that be hilarious?! Picture it...
The businessman dad who usually goes to work right after taking his kids to school now has to drive them all the way back home before his commute.
Moms, still tired and in their jammies, pull up to the school. They realize their mistake, slump their shoulders and shake their head. The look of annoyance and defeat on their un-makeup-ed faces.
Well.... I wish I could end this post with some classic pictures of those parents I just described, but my plan was scrambled by Jeff working that morning and my own laziness. It didn't seem worth it... waking my boys up early to sit in our van and freeze..... just for a few laughs.
Today, Civil Rights Day, almost made me one of those parents. And while I didn't even get as far as to dress Griffin in his school clothes.... I DID wake him up earlier than necessary (which woke Kai up) and rushed him through breakfast.
I've been had.
