Neither one of those is bad - it's kindergarten....or kinder-garden keeping with your bad pun theme
11:52 PM
Ring... Ring...
Mom: Hello
Me: That's brilliant! I am so totally using that. Kinder-garden. Why didn't I think of that?
For the record I think it was also my 4th call of the day. :)

Call 1:
Mom: Hello
Me: "Shhh! {stage whisper} It's me again Margret!
Mom: {stage whisper} Are you sneaking out?
Me: All I can say is the nurse better be at school so I can drop off these shot records. Because if my kids can't go to school on the first day I am homeschooling.

Call 2:
Mom: Hello
Me: The nurse was gone and the school was locked. I gave the records to a random stranger who happened to walk by. I am taking my bike rack back to the shop. They installed it upside down.
Mom: The new one?

Call 3:
Mom: Hello
Me: Turns out it wasn't upside down, they just installed the parts in the wrong places.
Me: On the bright side they could fix it today.
Me: On the down side - they broke another piece.

Life around here is never, ever, dull. :)
