in the past few weeks, i have mixed up three boys' names.
not my own sons, of course, but the ones circling around my
girls. i can no longer even remember which boy is 'friends'
with which of my girls.
"mom! that's bobby, not billy! he's here to take hailey out
to dinner, not me!! sick!!!"
the trouble is, they seem to think that i can keep track of
'friends' from two and three years ago. that is simply not
possible for my small mind.
"mom! that's billy, not bobby! he used to like sunday, not
so, from now on, when a new boy walks in the door, i will
give them a test like, "hey bud, would you please bring the
groceries in from my car?" (the ones YOU will be eating.)
if he does, i will try very hard to learn his name, but if he
can't pass my daughter's test, i won't try very hard to
remember it. :)
