So, super embarrassing confession here –
I spent quite a bit of time getting myself all mentally prepped and ready to have all 3 girls home yesterday for MLK day, and a decent amount of money equipping myself with snacks and crafts and a ton of herbal tea meant to take the place of beer. I even lined up our neighbor to come sit on the couch during nap time so I could go for a sanity-saving run midday.
And I made it. I survived.
The girls and I actually had a reasonably good day, with minimal yelling and only a few epic melt downs (none of which were mine, I might add).
I was feeling pretty good about myself for having rocked the Mom thing so well when I was catching up on some emails today and read one about collecting canned goods at school. With a general collection cut off of Monday morning at 9:30.
Monday at 9:30? Weren’t they closed for MLK day like daycare? I know I wrote that down in my calendar.
So I go back and check the school website and sure enough, there was school yesterday.
What. The. Heck.
At first I almost didn’t tell anyone because I was so embarrassed but then I figured that this was funny enough that I had to share it. Because what do we live for if not to poke fun at ourselves for general amusement?
On the bright side, total mommy win – I lasted all the way until 4:46 before I had a beer. Where’s my gold medal for that? 😉
