Why is it...

that the drafting ruler that we had to scramble madly on a Sunday afternoon to find for school on Monday still sits on my computer desk on Thursday morning? Instead of being in someone's back pack or in a school locker or in the drama tech class where it was originally intended to go?

Or why is it that we feel we need to inform mom on Thursday morning that we have no clean school pants and we must dig yesterday's school pants out of the bottom of the laundry pile (why are they on the bottom when we just wore them yesterday?) and wear them today?

Or why is it that after much loud "discussion" about telling mom that we are out of school pants the night before school and mom looks into said child's closet, she finds a perfectly clean, identical pair of school pants hanging in the closet just waiting to be worn? (Who would have ever thought to look in the closet for clean clothes?)

sigh. Do you think we will survive the school year?
