If we sucked at driving as much as we do at parenting, this would SURELY happen! Today was another stellar example...of course in front of the whole school. It turns out that today was some sort of Sweetheart Picnic at Ka'a'awa Elementary School. I did not know about this...at all. Eve had asked if I would go to lunch earlier in the week with her and as it turns out, I could not...but I was happy to volunteer her dad today because he was closing...again, it was just coincidence...no idea about this picnic. SO, I reminded CRH like a million and one times that Eve wanted him to come to lunch today. We discussed it last night that lunch is at 11:30am and he said he would in fact be there. Well, I get a text from him at 11:34am telling me that he's running late because of road construction. I get another text at 11:40 telling me that lunch was at 11am (NOT 11:30am) and that Eve had been very disappointed and crying that her dad had not shown up for lunch. OMG...I felt horrible. What kind of mother doesn't know when her kid eats lunch?? (I hope some of you don't...just so I won't feel SO bad!) Then, I get to Nancy's house and find out that Eve spent all of her lunch period crying because Dad wasn't there...I asked why Nancy had been at the school too and she told me that it was the picnic day...wow we suck!
On a positive note, I did remember that today was spring picture day!
