ARGH! I'm so annoyed with Kevin. Sigh! OK, I'm trying to teach him to be more responsible, and he's doing a little better keeping his papers in the right folders and such. But, today, he left his music book in the band room. I JUST spent $7.00 for a NEW music book last week. (Of course, he bought the 'new' one instead of a 'used' one for $3.00.) My guess is it's GONE! With classes changing all day (and he has band 1st period) there's just NO WAY somenoe didn't walk off with it. So, HE can use HIS allowance to purchase a new one (and NOT a used one either! If I have to buy 'new' then so does he.)
AND, DH had given him a strap for his trumpet case. Kevin rides his bike to school and DH is concerned that if he drops the case, the whole thing will open and spill on the street ... $700+ for a USED trumpet. So, he gave him this really nice strap that he has for the boat to keep around the case. This is the FIRST WEEK of bringing the trumpet to school ... Day #3, and he's lost the strap!
Both in one day!
I'm not sure WHAT to do with this child? There goes his allowance for the week. And, he still has 2 more days to go!
