Teaching Responsibility? NOT

I was so proud recently when our son left at 7 a.m. on a Saturday morning. As he said goodbye, we sat up in bed, and said, "WHAT? WHERE?" (the two most important questions) and he reminded us he was going to Enid to try out for All-State. I told my husband later in the morning how proud I was of him. I had totally forgotten about it since I hadn't turned my calendar over to November. He had gotten himself up and out the door on a SATURDAY at 7A.M.!!! My son is getting more and more RESPONSIBLE.


Only later that afternoon when he got home, did he tell me he had awoken by the buzz of his cell phone because his alarm did not go off for some strange reason (couldn't have anything to do with him, of course) and it was his friend from school, asking where he was. It was 7:06 a.m. and he was supposed to be there at 7 a.m. He rolled out of bed and made it up to the school before they left for Enid. Thank goodness for friends, huh? YEA, HE'S RESPONSIBLE.
