PM- you forgot Tripp's allergy medicine. You realize this Friday morning and feel terrible.
YOU MADE IT. You remembered (almost) everything. You spoke with Tripp's teacher and she doesn't hate you for leaving the ice cream of the step outside her door because you were late and the whole class was at the flag ceremony and you didn't know what to do. You figured out Tripp left his coat in music class yesterday. You remembered to bring Max's gas drops, and talk to Frannie's teacher about what happened to her cat ears from the parade.
slow, deep breath.
And here is why it was worth it:
We are always busy. Here's hoping next week is just a tiny bit less
