A snippet of our dinner conversation, discussing the weekly homework packet The Kid forgot at school:
"You're going to have a lot of homework the rest of the week to make up for it."
"I know. I'll do six pages tomorrow!"
"At after-school care?"
"No. I'll bring it home, and you remind me as soon as I get here."
"But you're going to your dad's tomorrow night."
"Oh right. Well then he'll have to remind me."
[silence, while I heroically keep my sarcastic scoffs to myself]
"Wait. When I take things to my dad's, they usually get lost at my dad's. I better not take my homework there."
"I think that's probably a wise decision. I'll grab it tomorrow when I drop you off at school and I'll bring it home with me."
"Plus, Dad's not a very good reminder."
"Nope. He's good at other things though."
"Like what? Playing video games?"
My sentiments exactly. Except, of course, when The Kid says it, it sounds like a compliment.
