Kenny: Mom, I didn't have my math homework in my folder.
Abbie: Yeah, my Green Folder (comes home every day) wasn't in my backpack either.
Mom resisted the temptation to say: I told you to pack up your backpack after you finish your homework and your Green Folder is signed. and I'm not responsible for your papers, you are! and Yall wanted to go the fair, right? You should have had all that done before we left! All this would have sounded like Charlie Brown's teacher.
Mom said: What can we learn from this? What can we do so this won't happen again?
Kenny (in a world-weary voice): I can pack my backpack when I finish my homework.
Abbie (upbeat, Kindergarten voice): Not let Mom have my Folder!
