1. What do you do when it is 15 minutes before your sleep deprived mother has to get up, yet you need to get a towel to take a shower?
a. Wait until she is up and quickly slip in the bathroom to get it.
b. Open the door quietly and tip toe in, grabbing a towel in the dark, and tip toe out.
c. Open the door with the light on in the hall, stick your face in your mother's face, and tell her you are going to get a towel so you can take a shower.
2. What is the purpose of a big girl bed?
a. A place to sit to do puppet shows with your soon to be baby sister's bath mitt.
b. A place to pile stuffed animals (otherwise known as babies)and to pour out your lacing beads.
c. A place to fall asleep at 9:00 and fool your mother into thinking she might actually get to sleep all night.
3. What is the purpose of a clothes hamper?
a. Purely decorative. Haven't you heard that white plastic is all the rage? And especially when it is surrounded by dirty clothes!
b. A dirty trick played by your mother/wife to try to trip you up as you make those midnight trips to the restroom.
c. Hey...here's an idea...it's a place to put your dirty clothes, so your mother/wife, who is hugely pregnant doesn't have to bend over to pick up the clothes and therefore risk the humiliation and pain of being stuck in that position until childbirth.
And you say...HORMONES?????? Add to this 18 6 year olds who clearly think that school is their social playground instead of a place to learn, feet the size of watermelons, and the first of 5--count them--5 meetings this week and I am pretty much toast.
