Ode to the Female Brain (How a Tote Bag nearly sent me over the edge)
4 4

“Wheres my tote bag?” exclaims my seven year old minutes before we head out the door.

We’re headed to Vacation Bible School and Olivia has decided to proclaim that this misplaced bag was MY responsibility, not hers, because "you and dad need to remember stuff too, you know."

Oh, reeeealllly?

Allow me, dear daughter, to enlighten you as to all the things I remember from the instant I wake up.

What day is it?
What time is it?
Which kid goes where and who's dropping them off?
Who's picking them up?
Is today the birthday party?
Where is the birthday party?
When is the birthday party?
How old is Julia?
Are Rainbow Looms still in?
Does she already have one?
I'll text her mom.
Did I ever RSVP?
Wait, were we even invited?
Is the party outdoors?
Should I pack sunscreen?
Don't use spray sunscreen
.

Find your own tote bag.

    Thank you!!! I completely understand. Since our girls are in the same VBS, I had the same experience. Thank you for the encouragement, that I'm not the only one in the same predicament.

    You git 'em momma!! My kids, who are all teens now, learned long ago not to even try to go there. Nothing like instilling a sense or responsibility in kids early in life; it'll serve them well later on.

    Oh Sarah, it's not just children.

    Oh yes.....seriously! I've been dealing with this same thing at our house....especially with our 5 year old son. He can't keep track of even his most prized possessions. Someday they'll get it, right?! Stay strong, Mama!!!

  • All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.
