ADHD Much?

Master J had to bring a picture to school two weeks ago for a school project they were doing. I kind of forgot about the project until the night before it was due. So I took a 5x7 out of a frame for him to take in the next morning. Nothing more was mentioned about the picture or the project.

Early last week, Master J informed me that his teacher had told them that if they wanted their pictures back to let her know, otherwise she would dispose of them. Not sure why that is, but I guess that's somewhat irrelevant. So I told him to make sure to ask for the picture back. Four times last week I reminded him to please ask for the picture back. Each time, he assured me he would. Then he went to school, and promptly forgot. So earlier today when we were playing a game, I reminded him again that he needed to bring home the picture. Our conversation...

Me: Now, do what do you need to ask Mrs. T for tomorrow?
MJ: My picture.
Me: Right. You're not going to forget again are you?
MJ: Of course not!
Me: Are you sure? Because I asked you four times last week and it still never made it home.
MJ: I'll remember.
Me: Would it be easier if I wrote a note and put it in your backpack?
MJ: That's a good idea.
Me: Okay. I'm going to go write a note for you to give Mrs. T so you can bring back the picture.
MJ: Okay!
Me: (less than two minutes later, after writing the note) I wrote the note and I'm putting it in your backpack.
MJ: What note?
Me: Seriously?
MJ: Seriously, what note?.
Me: I think my head's going to explode.
MJ: Really?

Kaboom.

Thankfully it came back that day and is now back in the frame.
