Wednesday morning was the first day of the new school year for Middle Lad and for Little Lad.
I slept in. Sophie slept in as well, but since no one ever expects her to lift a paw around here, it is ME, Pennie that gets all the blame.
I did not get up with Middle Lad. I did not make sure that he took his ADD medication. Mom did, but it is ME, Nurse Pennie, that is supposed to supervise and make sure that on the way from his hand to his mouth, Middle Lad does not lose FO-CUS, get distracted, and leave the ADD medication somewhere.
I did not bid Middle Lad a fond farewell.
I did not get up with Little Lad. No, I was still blissfully snoring away, with no thoughts of my duties as Nannie Pennie.
Then when Little Lad went out for the School Bus, I was still sleeping and the School Bus did NOT stop. The driver drove right on through the Stop Sign, and paid no attention to the four boys, one of which was Little Lad, that were waiting excitedly for their first day of the new school year.
Of course, if Nannie Pennie had been outside, in CHARGE, the bus driver would have stopped.
Even though I don't feel particularly remorseful, I did "act" repentent the rest of the day; mostly to make sure that I got my usual treats. I licked myself, and then walked right over to Mom's plate and licked her mashed potatoes. She was NOT happy, but did not give me the mashed potatoes.
THIS morning I did not get up with Middle Lad, but I did get up and make sure Little Lad got on his way; besides Mom was making a lunch for Little Lad so I needed to make sure there weren't any dirty dishes or scraps that I needed to clean.
