That happened!

For 6 years now, we drive Emily to and from school every day as we had her move into a school of our choosing, outside of our neighborhood.

When the forms are signed for this kind of transfer, you (as a parent) agree to be responsible for transportation.

We have juggled our schedules and made many adjustments here and there to be able to do this but here we are, nearing the end of Grade 11, only one more year to go on this “driver” plan we have with the school district.

This morning on the way to Emily’s school, I forgot to go to her school!

Yes, that happened!

We were chatting along and as I pulled in my work parking lot I realized that Emily was still with me πŸ™‚

I looked at her and said: “What am I doing?”

To which she answered by bursting out laughing.

When I asked her why she didn’t say anything, she laughed harder…

Lucky for me, the school isn’t far from my work so off we went to school and I was just in time for my Thursday morning 9am meeting.



Honesty versus Laughter

It’s march break this week and Emily wasn’t awake at 6am this morning.

My girl is a morning person and even more so on days where she’s home with nowhere to go.

7am still no Emily

7:30 nothing

7:45 we open her door, she lifts her head slightly.

She’s alive!

8ish she gets up


Emily where’s your phone? Β I couldn’t find it to plug it last night.

It’s in my bedroom

Did you play with it last night after I put you to bed?


😊 Jon and I just looked at each other and smiled. Β Our girl is so honest. Β What you see is what you get, our girl can’t lie. She tries but she’s not good at it.

While we were just contemplating our girl’s answer I said to Jon that honesty is the best medicine!

From the other room:

No mom, laughter is the best medicine!

Β  So, honesty or laughter? Β What do you think?
