Mission Accomplished

I broke the boy after five days.

Friday, I had to work, so Rocky decided this would be the day. He, ahem, forgot his lunch at home, taking the chance that his dad wouldn't notice and I wouldn't have time to take the lunch to the school, thus giving himself the opportunity to avail himself of a hot lunch.

He underestimated me. I called the school immediately and informed them that I didn't want him to miss out on a nutritious meal, so I was bringing him the lunch, and only charging 44 cents a mile. I took the lunch into the office, and the one woman who works there gets him. I told her, "I normally would be coming in my bunny slippers and bathrobe, but I am on my way to work, so I won't get to embarrass him this time."

"Oh, that's okay," she said. "I have no problem embarrassing him."

She did. She told him sweetly, "Tell your mom I love her slippers."

Rocky is now working on earning back his privileges. And there is soup in the freezer just in case we need it.

Late coming here. Glad to hear that it worked. As for me, I'm keeping points. I got four today and she got one, with many opportunities. Hmmmmmm.

My daughter HATES it when I stick my head, or worse, half my body, out the door when the school bus is coming. But she's always running late and I have to scream a message to her as she dashing to the bus. One morning I was so angry that I told her if she didn't do better I was going to step out onto the driveway in my bathrobe and let everybody see me. :)

We have to what we have to do, don't we? :)
