Why you should listen to your kids

So, yesterday Brenner told me they were having a fieldtrip for preschool.  "Hmmm, that sounds fun."  "There's a letter about it in my backpack."  (ok, I'll look at it later.  It wasn't on the calendar so it's probably for March sometime.)

So we get up to go pick up Carly (the little girl we carpool with).  Her mom answers the door and says, "ummm, we're going on the field trip today."

So, I checked Brenner's backpack and sure enough, there was a letter in there for the field trip today!  He was sick and missed a day last week, so she had given him his paper yesterday.  We jumped in the shower and headed down to the Planetarium for his field trip.  We saw a 3D movie about the ocean.  

(Okay, so later on I started freaking out.  What if I didn't carpool and I didn't know about the field trip and I just dropped Brenner off at preschool and no one was there.  And he had no way of calling me..... enough freaking out.  I will always check his backpack.)

I make that mistake all the time. I always think they are making stuff up, or whatever, and they are ALWAYS right.
