Are You Like This?



Does the morning when you are trying to get your kids off to school or yourself off to work do you feel stressed? This morning it went like this. Do you have your shoes? Do you have your snack? Get it in the bag. Okay, there's the doorbell. I think they are two minutes early. (Open the door-rush down the stairs--open door one--zip up coat--open door two). Then I say kindly, "Please stop hiding behind the door, they've got to go." Then I notice he is backpack-less. "Where is your backpack?!" I start looking around frantically. R looks at me with this you've-got-to-be-kidding sort of look, then says, "It is in your hand."

I had a very absent-minded roommate my freshman year who apparently came from a very absent-minded family. Once, when she was a baby, her mother couldn't find her anywhere. She looked frantically all over the house before asking some of her older children if they'd seen her. They stared at their mother blankly and then said, "Mom, you're holding her."
