What's wrong with this picture?
Field trip was Wednesday, not Tuesday.
Me: "Eric, please tell me you weren't the only one in your class who got the day wrong".
Eric: "Yes mom, I was the ONLY one in my class wearing our class shirt today."
I swear I am always screwing up something when it comes to Eric and homework/projects/special events/field trips. I'm clearly too old and forgetful to have a kid in the 3rd grade. Tomorrow is Grandparents Day at Eric's school. Perhaps I should go. I doubt anyone would question whether I belong.
Fortunately, Eric is pretty laid back about all his mom's screw-ups.
