SO, if there was ever a Loser Mom Award, today I've qualified. (again.)
At about 2:35 my phone was ringing and I answered it and it was my 4 year old's preschool teacher asking if everything was ok, because no one had come to get our daughters from school.
Did ya'll get that? We didn't pick our children up from school!??!
Usually Hubs picks our girls up at 2:30 so I don't have to get the 3 year old and the 1 year old that I sit for out of bed and rush to the school. Well, today I knew he was going to the hospital at 12:30 to see someone who was having surgery and he did mention to me that I "might need to get the girls".
Well, I thought that meant he would call me if he wasn't going to be finished at the hospital and he thought I was just going to go and pick them up so neither of us were there at 2:15 to pick them up.......
And, apparently not only had one teacher been calling me but the mother of the little girl I sit for had been calling me to because she was concerned. See, both little girls fell asleep at nap time - which these days is rare for my 3 year old -- and so did I. I was obviously so asleep that I didn't hear the phone ringing over and over and over again.
As I am running around trying to get some shoes and wake everyone up to go get them girls my door bell rings and I have worried these dear people so much that the mother of the little girls I sit for, has driven to my house with her assistant (in case I was passed out cold or something) to check on me.
ohhhhh, I am so EMBARRASSED!!!!
Well, I guess all is well that ends well. All children are home and accounted for. But I just thought I'd ask someone out there to give me the mother of the year award.....because you can clearly see that I deserve it.
Hope ya'lls Thursday is going better than mine.
