You Know. . .

You Know. . .
Your kindergartner had a long, exhausting first week of school when he lost privilege after privilege this weekend. Poor kid. Poor parents.

You Know. . .
You live close to your child's school when you hop out of the shower at 2:45, braid your hair, get dressed, wake up your other 2 children, change one diaper, get the kids in the stroller, walk to school, and have time to spare to pick up your child at 3:00.

You Know. . .
You and your husband are poor grocery-trip planners when 1. husband goes to the grocery store in the AM for worms (for fishing) and Sure-Jell (to make his annual plum jam), 2. wife goes in to same grocery store to get some more sugar for said jam, 3. husband has to go immediately back in to buy more sugar since he didn't think what wife had gotten was enough (it was), 4. later husband and firstborn (who had lost a privilege to watch a little show and had just finished cleaning up the toilets) go to same grocery store and pick up a lemon for said jam, 5. after kids go to bed wife runs to same grocery store and picks up a can of cream of chicken soup for Sunday dinner. holy annoying.
