Conversation at our house on second day of Pre-school:
Me (to my husband): I have laid out his clothes for school and packed his backpack. Everything he needs is in there and it’s sitting by the door. Don’t forget it.
Me: Son, don’t forget your pack. It has all the papers you need for school today.
Me (to my husband): I’m going to work now. See you later and don’t forget the backpack. I’ll pick him up at 3:00.
Husband & Son: Bye
Me: Goodbye and don’t forget the backpack!!
Later that morning, phone call from Me to husband:
Me: Hi, did you get him off to school OK?
Husband: Yes, but I forgot the backpack.
