"We've got to get going or we're never going to get into college," jokes my friend, who has a Ph.D, a couple of master's degrees and a closet full of ordinary B.A.s. She also has a teenager starting his senior year of high school next month. We all do.
We're at the book store researching our college options. The boys are back at Dianne's house racking up kills or points or whatever it is you earn for hours spent playing video games while your mom does your homework for you.
This just might be the smartest generation of kids yet.

LOL! Get used to it....I don't think mine did ANYTHING toward his college. I had to schedule the SAT, fill out the applications, research the colleges....I think I even had to click the "accept" link when he'd made his decision. And now that it's here (in a few weeks) I get to pay for it all too!

It's probably because you forgot to buy a Magnetic Responsibility Chart. I think it's going to make all the difference.

So now you're making him responsible for magnets? Wouldn't it be better if he were in charge of mowing the grass or washing the cars or something?
Or do you HAVE so many magnets that you need to dedicate a particular person to managing them? (Maybe the better approach would be to cut down on magnets.)

Cut down on magnets? We might as well just throw out our entire system of magnetized family life. Where is the attraction in that?
