Peach State says: I Forgot To Press The “Easy” Button!

We all have those mornings when we get side-swiped and knocked-up-the-side-of-the-head.
But…I am willing to bet you never had this happen…“I Forgot To Press The “Easy” Button!”

It was a normal morning…I had finished my coffee with my hubby and headed downstairs. One of the many duties a mother has, in the morning, is to check the weather for the day. The temperature this morning was a brisk 34 degrees which felt like 30 and the high is going to rocket into the upper 50’s.. I walked into the kitchen to see my youngest still in his short-sleeved T-shirt putting his backpack on his shoulder. “Are you sure you have everything…what about your…”
I was cut off!. “It is not cold outside…I know what I need!” (I keep forgetting I am a mom…not a Meteorologist!) I simply responded “Well if you feel sure”…and told him to have a wonderful day! I put the coffee cups on the counter and headed to the front window to watch over him…like always, except that he was not in sight. Where was he? I opened the front door and stepped out onto the steps calling his name. This was not a comforting feeling…the bus stop is our driveway and he was nowhere to be found. I continued to call his name as I searched around the front of the house. I looked down the street to the other bus stop…nothing. “He would not have left his backpack in the driveway if he had gone to another bus stop.” I looked up the street still calling his name…louder now as I was beginning to feel my heart trying to get out of my chest. I called my hubby and told him our youngest was nowhere to be found. He rushed down stairs and came to the door. Out of the corner of my eye I saw this child cross the street at the top of the hill. I yelled his name and…no response. He came back to our side of the street and came down about four house and prepared to cross the street to his friends house. I yelled again and caught his eye. He strolled…yes he S-T-R-O-L-L-E-D…down to the driveway. Why did you cross the street? “Are you blind?” he said. “You may want to lose that tone! Your daddy would like to see you inside.”

Long story short!. He denied crossing the street…and denied stopping and almost crossing over to his friend’s house. My hubby reminded him that mom is not blind and could see what he was doing up the hill…he then said he went for a run…”Then why we’re you not running?” “What?…You didn’t see me running?”

Quick…press the “Easy” button!

Good news: He did get on the school bus.
Bad news: He is grounded again and cannot leave the driveway unless he is in my car or daddy’s car.

I really need more coffee…(PRESSING THE EASY BUTTON!)…now that helps me calm down. The sad thing is he did not seem to be concerned that I was scared and frantically searching for him much less, his daddy who unfortunately will be late for work now. What a way to start my glorious-doctor-appointment-filled-day! My “Easy” button will get used a lot today. BTW…they are on sale…but I have to let you know that sometimes it is not convenient to press and that is does not work all the time.

Have a great day!
