I realized Maile had forgotten a form at home that was due by the end of the day.
Typically I wouldn’t go to my kids school in a pair of bright floral leggings…
But this trip was going to be lightening fast.
So quick, that no one was even going to catch a glimpse of my leggings.
I’m not even a leggings kind of person.
I retired my floral leggings in third grade and never went back.
But by gosh, they’re everywhere now aren’t they?
So I tried some on and in the name of comfort and high fashion…I bought them.
It’s not my fault I happened to be wearing them on the Day Of The Forgotten Form.
I flew to school at the end of the day, just as my kids were loading their bus.
I caught Laina’s eye on my way into the office and waved her over, “Hey! You want a ride home today?”
But she declined and scurried to her bus.
I thought it was the company of her friends preferred, but when she got home she said, “Mom? How come you came to pick me up from school and how come you wore those PANTS?”
I guess it was the company of her friends pants she preferred.
Next time I’ll bring cheeseburgers. That should do the trick.
