It Builds Character

by Meredith on May 9, 2014

Dear Lars,

I’m super sorry about this morning.

You know I would never normally get out of the Traverse or hold up traffic in the school’s drop off lane.

But today I had no choice. Your brother’s book bag was stuck on his booster seat. I had to get out and help him. And then his book bag dumped out all over the place, and I had to pick up all of his stuff.

I know some kids laughed us, and one dad beeped his horn. I was picking things up as quickly as I could.

In my defense, Fridays are my day off from work, and you know I like to clean the house on Friday mornings. I’m not exactly going to do that in a dress or a cardigan.

Lars, moments like these are character building. I bet you’ll end up having a great sense of humor when you’re an adult.

Consider this morning’s fashion faux pas a favor to your future funny self.

Anyway, I’m sorry.

Those pants have aPEEL.

Lars had GRAPE expectations that you’d stay in the car.

ORANGE you glad I’m done with the terrible puns?



I used to be the apple of his eye. I guess I’ve lemoned him down.



Obviously, you are going to have to throw a couple extra bucks in his therapy fund from this incident!






I can’t wait to have kids!! My mom used to drop me off in her bathrobe. I went to a small private school with like 200 kids k-12, so, yeah everybody knew us! :0) I think I turned out pretty funny and only have a slight drinking problem :0)



I have those pajamas! I love them!

Go up there looking like a model and all will be forgiven 🙂 ….throw dollars like confetti too!

Until you show up at school in a bathrobe and house shoes with rollers in your hair… it could always be worse! Trust me. I’ve seen it.



I hated when my mother would leave the house in her rollers to take me somewhere. I was so embarrased!! Still have issues with that. Why?? Why would anyone leave their house in their rollers?!
