Scheduling fail; where did I put my supermom outfit?

Posted by on May 16, 2012 at 11:32 am.

Ever had that nagging feeling at the back of your mind that you’re forgetting something important?ย 

Well, I had that feeling yesterday after picking up my daughter, and in continued throughout the evening. She didn’t have any homework yesterday, so I didn’t even bother checking her books. We had so much fun playing outside. I even was able to crochet a few granny squares while hanging out on our porch. It was a perfect evening.ย 

We tumbled into the house around 8:00. After taking a shower and fixing my daughter a snack I logged onto my Macbook Pro and discovered that…

I had a leadership meeting to attend last evening…

Whoops!

And my daughter’s Spring Concert for school was last evening.

Ruh Roh!

You know the one I’d only heard about a gazillion times? The one that she’s been practicing for a few weeks. Sure it was on my calendar, but it was marked for Thursday, the 17th. Totally my fault!ย 

My daughter has two music teachers; the one that’s part of her school program where she plays the recorder.ย The other is her piano teacher, where she takes lessons after school.

And now, I have to write a note explaining why she didn’t attend. It being a required activity by the school…

Oh this should be fun; Is what thought this morning, once I received an email from her third-grade teacher. I felt like such the bad mommy who has to be punished.

I’ve already sent my note, explaining that I simply forgot, and I offered my apologies. Not much I can do about that. Even with the obvious screw up on my part, we had a great evening!

    Hi @DragonLady, Yes, no reason to worry about it, since I can’t change the past. Thankfully this rarely happens, and they know that. I can’t think of the last time I did something like this. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wow. Sometimes these things just happen. Good for you for just apologizing and not trying to excuse it. None of us are perfect anyway so what can you do? I’m just glad the reason you missed it was because you two were having so much fun and not for illness or anything like that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi @teeni,
    You know, I thought the same thing. One boy in her class has been out for five days. I’m hoping he and his family are ok.

    Apologizing was the only right thing to do. The Spring Concert used to be on Thursday nights, but this year they switched it up. That was still my fault, since I could have done something as simple as, look at my online calendar!
