Today was the day.
My oldest boy started high school. My middle child started 8th grade and my youngest started 3rd grade.
I got up this morning and cooked breakfast for those who wanted it. Got myself and the youngest and the oldest ready and off we went. I was volunteering at the high school in the guidance department today. (Had I known what was in store, I would have faked a kidney stone or something). My little one hopped out of the truck and never even looked back, she was more than ready to get to school.
The oldest did some errands for me at the school before his classes even started. (He's just cool like that).
I spent the entire day babysitting teenagers who had not received schedules for one reason or another. YIKES!!!!! I really don't remember being that silly when I was a teenager. But, like, whatever, right?
So at 3:00 pm my cell phone rings and it is the receptionist from the elementary school wanting to know if I am coming to get my sweet daughter. I told her, "Well, no one called me to tell me there was anything wrong with her". The receptionist said, "It's 3 o'clock". I said, "I know it's three, but no one called me to tell me there was something wrong with my daughter." She said, "School got out at 2:15."
OMG!!! I forgot to pick up my daughter on the first day of school.
Yeah, I'll just be standing out by the mailbox waiting for that mother of the year award.
Anyone else ever done anything like that? I was so freaked out that I forgot her.
Oh well, maybe tomorrow I should set the alarm on my phone or make the ring tone, "ITS TWO O'CLOCK, GO GET YOUR CHILD".
Y'all have a good week.
