I think he's trying to make me look bad

The kindergarten teacher sent a note requesting we send an apple to class for a special fall activity.

I put Sam's apple in his lunchbox and said, "I'm putting this apple in your lunchbox for your special project in class...do not eat it for lunch."

"OK mommmy."

You can imagine my surprise when he gets in the minivan after school, opens his lunchbox, takes out the apple, and starts munching.

"Uh, Sam...wasn't that for a class project?" I questioned.

"I decided I would save it for the ride home. Besides, Ms.P. had extras."

oy! I figure I already have enough "bad mommy" points to last me the rest of the year.

I hate when things like that happen. I need no extra help making myself look bad. I've always been good at it.

I'm sorry. That's too funny. The kid is too smart.

My son is famous for doing this...giving me sign up forms when whatever it is already ended. {sigh}

Apparently, a kid's got to do what a kid's got to do. So sorry to be laughing, but I can't help it. The man has his priorities. Too funny.

Okay, I'm laughing, too. That is so funny--I bet he looked forward to that apple all day :)
