Middle-one needed note cards for school. His teacher told them that they would need to get some for Science class. Middle was so concerned about this that he asked Ms. Teacher to email me to let me know. She did. I confirmed that they were just your average, standard, white, 3x5 index cards. She said, they were.
That was Friday...
All weekend we heard...
"I need note cards for school"
"don't forget to get my note cards for school"
"My teacher said that I had to have note card Monday"
"Can we go get my note cards now?"
"If you go to the store, don't forget to get my note cards"
Trouble trusting son?
So, being awesome parents and all, on Sunday, Mr. T got Middle his note cards. I put them in his backpack.
Sunday night was filled with...
"Did you put my note card in my backpack?"
"Where are my note cards?"
"I have to check to see if my note cards are in my backpack"
"I can't forget to take my note cards to school"
After school on Monday, I'm checking Middle's backpack and low&behold.....there is a lovely, multi-colored, spiral note card book in his backpack...right next to his new, unopened pack of cards that we provided...I take the bait and ask...
"Middle, where did these note cards come from?"
"My teacher bought some in case someone forgot to bring theirs and I asked if I could have one and she said I could"
And the colors do match the large, 5 subject, spiral notebook he conned out of her, so nicely too.
