Re: The concept of being organized/having your ducks in a row?
I'm impressed that y'all remember that stuff for your kids. I was responsible for remembering when all my lessons, GS meeting, etc. were... I don't think my mom ever kept a calendar, or really kept track. (I lived within walking distance of my elementary school, so that worked in her favor.) Of course, her idea of parenting was "benign neglect." If I needed to be picked up somewhere... well, let's just say that I spent a lot of time waiting, and on occasion was forgotten completely. In high school, the band director gave me a ride home more than once when no one came to pick me up, and no one picked up the phone at home.
