Welcome to the Last-Minute Household!

Tonight - another amazing performance by the fabulous Last-Minute Children!!

Sure, it's been a long weekend, but that's no reason to let mom in on the secret that there's really stinky gym clothes mouldering in your gym bag. Not until ... the last minute, of course!!

Oh, and what? There's a Tuesday quiz on kitchen measurements and some reading that's due tomorrow and maybe even a permission slip or two that needs to be signed? Ta da!! Welcome to the Last-Minute Household!!

Of course, Last-Minute Mom probably should have checked those book bags a little sooner, and maybe done laundry a little earlier, and perhaps been a little more militant with deadlines instead of letting everyone sit around and watch Percy Jackson fight Medusa - because that's the best part.

But really, what's a weekend without a little last-minute excitement, after all?


  1. Funny. My kids and I are last minute too. In fact my oldest informed me right a bedtime that he has to turn in his science fair topic tomorrow. And I have yet to go through the youngest two's backpacks for tomorrow. Sigh!

  2. Sad (in a funny sort of way) when our kids take after our worst parts, isn't it? Cute post! I am looking forward to reading more.

    I found your blog through the Michigan bloggers groups on Bloggy Moms. You can check out my blogs if you are interested at:

  4. Ok, but for sure we're all going to be reeeallly organized next week!! Um, right? Yeah, right. I'll probably find even GRODIER gym clothes in that bag next week! (But it makes me feel much better that I'm not alone!)
