Today is Max's last day of pre school. At this school, on the last day they have the kids dress up in costumes and have a small program where each class performs.
Since today was Max's last day of school (as I pointed out in the first paragraph) we planned on dressing him up as a cowboy, only we couldn't find the cowboy costume, so, I went through my huge stash of fabric and (with very little time before he needed to be at school) I pulled out a piece of red sequined fabric and quickly made a simple vest and bow tie for our little buckaroo.
(Now if you are feeling the need to be impressed that I made a vest and bow tie in 30 minutes, DON'T, because you didn't see it. It was functional, not impressive)
We got him dressed and got him to school only 15 minutes late.
Brielle and Aaron are out of school now, so I made them come with us. I was prepared with my camera, and a little worried that we might have missed the class performance. As we were walking in, I thought it strange that there weren't more cars in the parking lot, but didn't think much of it.
(you can see where this is going, can't you?)
I signed Max in at the front office and walked him to his classroom. As Max walked in, one of his teachers said "Wow Max, you look cute today!"
It was then that I noticed that none of the other kids were dressed up. My first thought was that all the other parents were kind of lame for not having their kids dress up, and then I noticed that none of the parents were even there! (No, I still didn't get it. It's OK, you can give me a virtual smack upside the head)
Then it dawned on me........................
and I asked the teacher "Isn't today the last day of school?"
"Um, no, that's next week."
I asked Max if he wanted me to take his costume home and he said he would like to keep it on for the day, so he is now at school wearing a red sequined vest and bow tie. (I'm just glad I didn't draw the mustache on him like I wanted to)
And I feel stupid.
On the other hand, not only was I actually not late for something, but I was early! An entire week early!!
A WHOLE WEEK PEOPLE!!!
That is most definitely a record for me. I'm thinking that if you add up the number of minutes that I was early (# of minutes in a week = 10,080) It most likely makes up for all the minutes that Max might have been late for school during the year.
Don't you think?
Aaron just pointed out that today, Max was 15 minutes late, so that means he was only 10, 065 minutes early today. I wish he would apply this math genius to his school assignments.
