What's worse is when I sit down here to work and time slips away and I end up driving one of them all the way to school. For some reason, my kids don't clock-watch and they let the time slip by without telling me. Or they ask me after the fact, "Shouldn't we have left by now?" I think they hope I'll forget they have to go to school at all.
I would like someone to keep track of my time for me. What is it like to not be constantly watching a clock and keeping time? Even at school and my husband's work, they have bells for that. Maybe I should set up a bell system at home to go off when it's time to leave for the bus, when it's time to pick up the kids, when it's time to make dinner.
My bell system would be ringing all day long. I'd have to have one with a voice message telling me why it was going off. It would also have to have lots of room for variables. Tuesday and Friday my oldest has after school clubs, Wednesday my youngest has an after school club. Wednesday night my youngest has youth group. One Friday month I have bunco and on and on.
Well, I guess it's called a calendar and if I wanted to put it all in my phone calendar I suppose I could. But who wants to be reminded of everything all the time. I'm sure my family really just wants me to handle it, as long as I don't call them late for dinner.
