Don't Ya Love it...(updated)

...when your son says, "You going to town today?"

"Wasn't planning on it. Why???"

"We have an 'opening ceremonies' competition tomorrow...and I need black pants, black shoes and a white shirt."

...of course, son. Right after I jump in my time machine AND water the money tree...
argh.

****Whew, I knew I wasn't the only mom dealing with this! Just so ya' know, I do get the less-than-24-hour-notice too. This call occurred on my way to town...

"Mom, do you have your checkbook...cuz you need to stop by the school NOW and pay for my FFA jacket. Oh, and I will also need a black belt and black socks to wear tomorrow for the competition...since you're going to town."

A pair of swim flippers.

Oh yeah, that's an argh!

At least he gave you a 24 hour notice! He coulda waited to the morning of!

It's at times like this that I do the shop at home thing! wear the brothers pants, the other brothers shirt, the dad's shoes and belt. Unless of course he is bigger than everyone- then ya gotta go shopping!

I have to agree with Jean, I usually get something like "hey mom, I need money for this and and that" as they are walking out the door.

Gotta love the kids.

Oh, and I used to hate when my parents would talk about the money trees, and here I am now doing it with my own kids.

Hugs,
Mandi
