Son’s book bag took to hiding this morning. My pictorial version of the events, with Mags the Wonder Dog looking on in all of her cuteness. My artistic talent knows no bounds!! We sent son off to school thinking he left it on the bus. Oops, our bad. Turns out, D1 had taken his book bag down to her room the night before mistakenly thinking it was hers…they’re both black. Hence, the argument for hers to have some colour in it and not simply the big MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY written on the outside in white lettering. Yeah.
So, son rode the bus in utter panic thinking it was gone forever. I called the school once it was found and the secretary knew that ma little Rain Man was upset at the impending doom of his book bag. It was returned before lunch. Tragedy averted…order was restored to the universe. You. Are. Welcome.
AND, we are a bi-lingual household…even the dog speaks French! And the inanimate objects! Okay, no we’re not, but it makes for interesting bubble chatter…

Where’s Encyclopedia Brown when you need him?
Not in the book bag!
If only our children put things where they belong, but before doing that, they make sure they have the correct item. I guess that would be living in a dream world.
Yes, or you have highly organized children..unlike mine.
Cheers to bilingual households!
