So WHY is it, that the *SAME* kid whom I instruct, without fail, every *SINGLE* morning, the same five things: 1) get dressed, 2) brush your teeth, 3) make your bed, 4) brush your hair, and 5) get your backpack….and this kid inevitably forgets at least ONE of those five things that we have done on a DAILY BASIS for a whole year and a half now…
(I mean, seriously, I can tell her ‘Go do your five things…’ and she’ll run upstairs, then 15 minutes later come back down, in pajamas, with bed hair and unbrushed teeth, because she forgot).
Why is it that THIS KID, when we’re unpacking our Christmas decorations, that we have not seen in nearly a year, remembers:
“Mom, last year my Black Lab Christmas ornament broke, so when I unwrap it, can you fix it? His tail and paw broke off.”
