Boys & Paper~Mom's Doing a Happy Dance!

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?


  1. It's tough. I JUST went through all the stuff I thought I had to save from my oldests first year in school. He's in first grade now but the piles of stuff they bring home are very intimidating. I finally got an 8.5x11x2 box and when it was full I was done. Everything else went into the trash. If the kids become packrats I'll have no one to blame but myself.


I always love feedback on my blog!
