Memory Lapse

I know in a lot of my posts it seems like I'm hard on Jay. For any of you wondering about that he does give as good as he gets. Most of our families know that and Lyle and Jania were witnesses to it last week in Charlotte. This next story though is too good to not write about. For those who think I'm too much like Kate from John and Kate + 8, even you'll appreciate this story.

Jay had a FFA officers meeting at 7:30 am this morning. They have these at least once a month and they're not a big deal. Cade gets to play on the computers from 7:00 to 7:50 and then Jay take him to the elementary for school. This morning I got a phone call from Jay at 10:00 and he says "uh, you're gonna kill me". For a brief moment I was concerned because he sounded like something was wrong. He then went on to say "I'm just now getting Cade to school". After the meeting Terry called, then Jay went to eat breakfast and then it was time for school to start. Finally at 10:00 a student walked by the computer lab and said "shouldn't that kid be in school." That's when it hit Jay, he had forgotten to take Cade to school this morning. Cade had been playing computer games for almost 3 hours. He never moved from his spot. When Jay walked into the lab to get him Cade said "man dad, that meeting took a long time". I laughed so hard that I was crying when he told me, but I've always had a fear of forgetting Cade so I wasn't upset. But it's going to take Jay a long, very long time to live this down at school. I'm sure it spread from one end of the hall to the other in record time.

Don't feel bad I did it to Ty 2 weeks ago. It was the exact same way and I felt horrible. Ty loved it! The only thing it is a little scary to think we are all teachers of kids and we forget our own!
