Not lost, not late.

november 12 2008




Sometimes the children expect too much from themselves.

One of my boys often gets lost when he goes to a neighbourhood he has never been before.
No google map can prevent that! (But mom can!)

And I'm sometimes faced with busses that are not on time, but get delayed, making me feel stressed because I'm too late for an appointment.

Since a few weeks I have a system here at home that everyone likes to bits.

I have bought a roll with white little stickers.
On it I write the name of the person who is waiting, and the telephonenumber.
And I stick it on the cellphone that goes in a bag or in the pocket of the coat.

It's so very easy to phone and tell that you're lost or that you're caught in traffic.


It works for my children and me and I'm sure it'll work for you.

  2. That's a good idea. At least you can let them know you're running a bit late.
