The Misadventures of the School Locker

The Misadventures of the School Locker

So this year Diva Girl has her first locker. Silly me…I thought this was exciting. She, on the other hand, was horrified. The thought of having to memorize a lock combo was not her idea of fun. My solution was to take her with me so she could choose her own lock. There’s definitely way more selection than when I was a kid. Then I told her to practice her combo over the weekend until she felt comfortable. But she was still a bit nervous because 2 kids at school had already forgotten their combos on the 1st day. So she practiced diligently until she had the combo memorized. To be safe we made a copy and put it in Baby Girl’s backpack. She is not yet part of the elite locker crowd.

Success!

Diva Girl had a great day, the lock situation was handled. She was so happy when she came home.

Diva: “Mom I did it! I remembered my combination today.”

Me: “That’s great!”

Diva: “I had no problems. Look!” she was very proud and takes the lock out of her bag to show me.

Me: “Uh…you’re supposed to leave the lock at school!”

I’m still laughing…
