Daddy is on a business trip

David is on vacation (I mean a business trip) this week and I have become, once again, a single mother living on the verge of a nervous breakdown. We need to reiterate the rules.

1. Lunch is already packed when you wake up. It has been decided. There will be no negotiation on content. By the way, your lunch is exactly the same as your brother's lunch.

2. Breakfast is already on the table when you wake up. You may like it. You may not. This will be your breakfast.

3. Mommie is basically humorless. There will be no rolling up and down of car windows. Also, there will be no fighting over swim team, basketball or homework club. Those things will happen. Do not use my skirt to wipe off your snot. No back talk. But if you do talk back, I probably will not hear you because of the music in the front seat.

4. There are two or three new babysitters this week. In your backpacks, you will find permission for pick ups and also pictures and descriptions. These are nice people. Try not to scare them off until summer break.

5. There is unlimited iPad. Yes, you read that correctly.
