My Son Ate My Calendar!

You've all heard the excuse..."My dog ate my homework!"

Well, today I went to go grab my appointment book which I often call my Bible because it holds EVERYTHING I need to know to function on a daily basis! I found it on the floor near the dining room table and there were a few remnants of wet and chewed paper next to it.

JOAQUIN ATE MY CALENDAR BOOK!!!

He helped himself to two pages...this week and next week...and now I'm totally LOST!!!

I'd be freaking out if it wasn't so darn funny. Silly...and apparently hungry...boy!

Now off to figure out what I had planned and scheduled for this week and next. Yikes! Just happens to be two very important and busy weeks in our lives right now!

That is to funny as I just caught Sam eating some paper that he found on the floor in Cody's room, he eats paper all the time, loves it!! hahaha Hope you find out what you had scheduled.

Amazing, of all the weeks, it had to be this one and next week (he couldn't have helped you out by going back a couple of weeks, huh?!) *Sigh*...oh well, gotta love him!!

LOL! I can so relate - Malakai also has an 'aquired taste' for anything paper-related!
Hope you find your way through the next two weeks without forgetting too many appointments!

I would be in the same position as you if Luke got his hands on mine. Little monkey!

Yes Jennifer, likely story. While I'm working at the schools I'll keep an ear out for more stories.
Well, maybe he just needed some fiber in his diet. :-))

Meg said...

You need to keep in all in your phone! He can't eat that. . . or so we think!

Ha! What a funny story. Madi loves paper too...she's never gone for my calendar though. I can only imagine how lost you feel without it!

I think I would die if that happened to me. But a few years ago I switched to an e-calendar (iCal) so it's on my computer, phone, etc. Which is probably good because I'm sure Sheridan would do the same thing Joaquin did :) Maybe he's telling you he wants more fiber in his diet ;-)

what is the deal with these paper eating children??? i just read your post, Jennifer, and I can't believe it!
We survived Whitney's second attempt at getting tubes today with no further paper-eating incidents! :)
hope you can figure out what you have going on this week... good luck!

What is it about kids and paper? I don't mind if they tear it up and play ith it, but both my boys are always eating it! Luckily nothing important tho...

Michelle said...

That is TOO funny!!!!

He knew you were a busy mama and wanted to help you clear your calendar. :)

I'm sorry for laughing, but that is hilarious! Obviously the future tastes better than the past!

That sounds so awful. Awful funny, (awful tasting) but also just plain awful to have to reconstruct you 2 weeks!!!
