Well I'm sitting here knowing that many of you are waiting for this post..
I keep forgetting you all actually read my tweets, blog posts and facebook updates..
I just kinda forget that part sometimes.
And because this day has been what it has (I'm leaving lots out for you with weak stomachs) this cannot be eloquent, wordy, witty and full of wisdom..it is what it is.
Today I forgot about Silas (#4)..in fact I forgot about him so much the school had to call me...
"Hello this is Amber." my really professional phone answering skills come through when I know it's the school.
"Yes, this is Debbie from Dutch Hill Elementary."
"Um Yes?" My response...as in why in the world are you calling me Debbie receptionist lady...as in it is still not EVEN clicking that I've committed the worst of all parenting crimes.
"Yes, were you planning on picking up Silas today from school?"
I then shrieked very loudly (like someone has died loud) and say,
"I'm the worst Mom EVER!!!" Like really loud..and like really high pitched and annoying.
To which Debbie (thankfully) started cracking up really hard.
By the time I arrived at school a whole 50 MINUTES LATE!!!!!
I had cried off all of my makeup and had convinced myself that CPS would be waiting.
Thankfully the office ladies were still laughing at my shriek and worst Mom ever comment...
Silas of course being #4 did not seem too upset by the whole thing..
"Mom, I just wanted to give you my Mother's Day present, and I was wondering where you were."
Why oh why did God think I deserved such a perfect child..not sure I will ever know.
This ranks up there with when I almost had to have Isabelle's toe amputated..but that is for another post..
