forgotten key

august 29 2008

She's ome of those people who tends to forget everything and who's always able to mobilise the helptroops.

Not today!

I can barely walk, let alone go upstairs and search her room for the key.

It can be in the trousers she was wearing yesterday... maybe they are on the chair, or maybe in the bathroom...
or it can be in a bag she used yesterday... but she doesn't remember which one she was using...
or it can be on the desk...or downstairs...or...

My conclusion is simple:

As the key can be anywehere it can be in the bag she has with her... or in her coat... or in the trousers she's wearing...

So she has to deal with it herself.

Even when I find the keys she won't have me bycicling through half the town to bring it to her.

I know...I'm a bad mother.
But I'm very happy to enable her to learn to take of her own things.

I'm very generous!


  1. You're a great mom!

    Allowing our kids to own the consequences of their behavior helps them to grow. Being a "helicopter parent" is not good.

  2. Hi Laane-

    You sound like a great mom!I am Judd Corizan. I produce a new meme called Sunday Stealing. It’s located at: It’s a meme I am producing that originated on Bud Weiser’s WTIT Blog. I am now heading up the meme that you can play every Sunday. What we do is search for the best memes in the blogosphere and steal them. We always contact the blog’s owner and fess up to the theft and give them a link.

    It has been incredibly popular on Bud’s blog and Bud has always encouraged his readers to steal it as well. Sunday Stealing introduced the infamous “CD Cover” meme to hundreds of readers. And that is the best part. Every week the meme will always be different. We’ve contacted since you have played Saturday 9, which is as hot a meme as there is on the internet. Naturally, we got permission from Samantha Winters (Crazy Sam) and she is excited about our meme and was thrilled to help. We’ve exchanges links/ads!

    We did a “dry run” on this past Sunday and will go live on this Sunday August 31st! We hope you join us. We hope you’ll join in! And if you haven’t played Saturday: 9 in a while, I promised Sam I’d invite you play again at
