Just a gentle reminder that I need for you to sign and return the past two weeks test packets.
Thank you for your help, Teacher."

Re: Test Packets

"Dear Teacher:
I'm so sorry, I don't know where the test packets are. I asked Oldest about it but he didn't know. I will double check and make sure that we didn't overlook it. I'll be sure to get back to you soon."

To: Hubby
From: Justice Jonesie
Fwd: Test Packets
"Have you seen the test packets??? I looked for them but didn't see them. I thought maybe she didn't send them."

To: Justice Jonesie
From: Hubby
Re: Fwd: Test Packets
"I did, sorry."

Me: Where are they?
Hubby: I threw them away.
Me: What do you mean you threw them away?
Hubby: They are in the trash. I threw them away. I don't think I threw last week's away, but I know I threw yesterday's away. I didn't know she needed them.
Me: Did you even read it?! Did you see the section that says "Please sign and return tomorrow. Do you even know how he did on his tests?!"
Hubby: I saw some 100s.

Now THAT is funny. In the usual manly way - tests are over so there is no reason to keep this stuff. Funny.

That is exactly why I smack my hubby's hands away when he reaches for the kid's backpacks. I am the only one allowed to go through them. Oh yea, that and the mail.

Hehe. DH and I fight over who will check the school folders and sign them every night. I just know he will miss something and I will get a similar note from the teacher.
