Look at all of this STUFF!
OK~This Mom is now doing a "Happy Dance!" Garrett is in 9th grade and has NEVER been concerned about the amount of "junk" he carries around in his backpack. I was totally stunned at 7:05 a.m. this morning. Considering the bus arrived in 5 minutes, he had to move quickly. He had his backpack on the floor and papers were being tossed onto the table left and right. I said to him, "What are you doing?" "Oh Mom, I've got to get rid of these old papers from last semerster!" I thought to myself, "Did I hear that correctly?" YES- there is hope! My 14 year old will not live in a pig pen forever! Now, if I can only get him to see that he needs to shovel his room out....ummmmmmmm..After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
