that would be me

The form looked simple enough. Name, grade, homeroom number-- no problem. Type of medication--check. Dosage--check. Time of day to be administered--check. Today's date--got it. Parent's signature.

I freeze. I stare at it blankly. The panicked thought comes out of nowhere-- My mom is camping. She can't sign it. What am I going to do?

Then I chuckle, grinning sheepishly in my empty kitchen. Parent's signature. Duh.

I AM the parent.

Heaven help us all.
