My Little Runaway

The Girl and I have been at odds the last few weeks over - what else - her not doing her homework assignments. Things finally came to a head last week when we got her midterm grades and she still has a D in math.

We had a huge blow up and then a long talk and I thought we'd cleared things up. Apparently not, however, because yesterday I found this note in her backpack. (Sorry the image is a little off..I need to adjust my scanner)

I have to give the girl credit for wanting to be prepared. She's going to wait until she's older and has a car, and she needs a brush for her own comfort. As a mom, I have to say I'm darn proud that she included "good shoes" and "toothpaste/brush" on her list.

Well, I know who I would have wanted with me if I had ever run away. She really thought of just about everything!

HAHAHA! Okay, so...she's going to wait till she has a car and all the necessities, and then she's going to run away? Wow, how adorably Type-A.

And is that "gun" written in parentheses? O_O

I wonder where she gets her attitude. ;)

At least your girl planned. Mine would just leave and then come back and ask me to pack for her. lol

@Jen - the gun is for protection. She's going to need it living in the wild and all.

@Eyre - She's all over it, isn't she?

@Tracy - You might be surprised. I figured that's how mine would be and here she is, surprising me. lol

She's so resourceful, I wouldn't be surprised if she's knocked down half of the list by the end of the year.

Did you tell her that she pretty much described leaving for college. The only way to "run away". I guess it could be considered a bit dangerous. And she probably would need a water purifier if she became a naturalist and attended Humboldt State. hahahahaha
