Caroline has been battling carsickness and noise overload on the school bus, so I have been picking her up at school when it's feasible. Today was the 3rd day I picked her up, and it was the 3rd consecutive day she's forgotten her jacket in her locker. This never happened when she rode the bus home.
So in the car, I suggested she remind herself to get her jacket and put it in her backpack if she didn't want to wear it. And I said I couldn't figure out why she could always remember it on bus days, but she always forgets it on pickup days.
"Oh Mom, I know. I forget. But it's just a phase."
