A Time to be Forgetful

Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy
 righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? ~ Psalm 88:12

This handsome little boy LIVES in the "land of forgetfulness"! If any of you have any ideas on how I can get him to not be so forgetful that would be great! The nice jacket you see him wearing in this picture was lost on the playground a couple months back. He got hot and took it off and left it on the fence. We keep checking the lost and found but it hasn't turned up. I'm really bummed because I had this plan. The plan was to buy an LL Bean jacket so that it would be good quality. I bought it for him a little big so we could get 2 winters out of it. Then when he was done wearing it I could keep handing it down to his brothers. I'm really bummed my plan didn't pan out and I'm left having to buy another coat for next winter with no jacket to pass onto the younger ones. Then yesterday as I'm going through Noah's school folder I find a note his teacher made him write me that said, "I can't find my glasses" with a side note from her saying he hasn't had them all week. Ahhhh...seriously! So I spent a good part of the morning tearing his bedroom apart hoping to find them. No luck but we're not giving up hope. Is this is a boy thing and I have this to look forward to 4 times over? I don't think I can handle it! :)

  1. Hmmmmm . . . the jacket thing would make me upset. That's a good plan b/c you know the LL Bean would have lasted. They have an unconditional guarantee, right? Call and say it vanished - that's a serious design flaw. (kidding)
