Today I am supposed to work. I took the shift from a friend who needed it off.
Today Conner is having his awards assembly (each child at the school gets an award at one of four awards assemblies during the year). Does he care that I’m not coming? No. He could NOT care less. As for me, I’m trying to get the day off, I keep checking with him to make sure it’s OK. And honestly, when I look at the whole situation — the point of the assemblies is to cheer on each other, the parents aren’t involved at all except to perhaps take a picture. But then again, when are moms really honest with themselves?
It’s just the guilt of working… the fact that I have to choose it over him, because I have made a commitment. Of course, showing them that you need to keep your commitments is important too.
Anyway. Just wondering if I’m the only one who gets her panties in a bunch over the little things.
