14. Where'd I Put My Kid?

I was thinking through my day while drying my hair this morning.  It occurred to me that Nathan's new teacher hasn't met my husband yet, so it struck me that maybe I should alert her that he would be picking Nathan up from school today instead of me.

I should note before I tell you this next part that I had not had any coffee yet at this point.  I don't think I was talking out loud to myself for this little monologue, but it's entirely possible.

Why have I not seen Nathan's teacher all week?

Wait, what day is it?  Yesterday was Tuesday.  Today is Wednesday.  Wednesday, right?  {pause} Yes.  Wednesday.

OK, so where has his teacher been?  Did he go to school yesterday?  Yes.  He did.  Where was I?  I was at work.  Did I forget to pick him up?  No, I don't pick him up on Mondays and Tuesdays, his grandparents do.

It rained yesterday, I left him in the gym.  I don't see his teacher in the morning when it's raining.

Working backwards...

Monday.  I picked him up at his grandparents.  They pick him up from school.  It was nice out.  Why didn't I see his teacher Monday morning?  Was there a sub?

Oh wait.  He didn't have school on Monday.  I dropped him off at his grandparents in the morning.

{sigh of relief}

I need to remember to tell Ms. P that Kris is picking up Nathan today.

I strongly urge someone to get a video of me freaking out at 3pm today when I realize that I didn't leave work yet to pick up Nathan, only to remember a minute later that my husband is picking him up today and I'm going to work until 4pm.  I'm sure it's going to be hilarious.  And yes, I'm sure it will still happen, even with this much thinking about it now.

  1. Thank God I'm not the only one. It is Wednesday, I just checked(because I had no idea either) on my way to get my coffee.

  2. Oh my god. I was laughing as I read this because just this morning, I accidentally put on the wrong color pants, and didn't even notice until I walked into my office over an hour later. Why is Wednesday always so fraught?

  4. You know, I am having trouble figuring out what day of the week it is every since Sandy. We had no school for so long. I still feel all discombobulated...So yeah, blame Sandy!

    1. I wish I could say this only started post-Sandy, but I'd be lying. It's definitely worse though!

    1. I keep thinking that it's crazy I'm allowed to raise a kid when I can barely remember where he is!
