As with most with grade school aged children, today would be the day when all the Valentines Day parties would occur. It was so for my second grader. And for some odd reason, I forgot to do her cards with her. I remember thinking that I should be doing them but then I got distracted with something (TV) and she went to school with nothing.
This is me dropping ball #1
The same second grader lost a tooth on Monday. She didn't get her money until Thursday and I forgot to take the tooth. I didn't take the tooth because I forgot the tooth was upstairs in my office. When the second grader woke up that morning, I told her to check under her pillow to see if the Tooth Fairy left her money. She told me she couldn't have left her money because she didn't put her tooth under her pillow (doh!). When she found the money, she came to me and said, "You put the money under my pillow, didn't you, Mom? It's OK if there really isn't a Tooth Fairy."
This is me dropping ball #2.
My fourth grader is fixing her own dinner because she's tired of take out pizza that I had the man go out to get.
Ball #3 is falling.
I forgot to send a snack in with my second grader for gymnastics tonight. Did I mention she's still recoving from having strep?
I gave my three year old some diet coke just to keep him from bothering me: Here, just take the can and go over there. Just don't be here.
Not my best week and probably won't be my worst either. Hopefully none of this will be retained in their long term memory.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
