So, I just spent a LONG weekend nagging the kids to get ready for the first day of school. We bought school supplies, and I nagged and nudged and ordered them to pack their backpacks, and go over their class lists, and assemble their equipment, and clean out their closet full of last year's stuff, and made them pick out what they were going to wear. . .
And I STILL got a phone call because somebody forgot something and needed me to 1) find it and 2) bring it to school.
Does this mean I should stop nagging, or should I assume that my nagging meant only one thing was forgotten?
