Not perfect.

I've always been paranoid about setting my phone alarm and work calendar alarm to go off when it's time to pick up Callie from school.  I've always thought how sad it would be if she was sitting there waiting and no one showed up.  Well, yesterday it happened!  It was early release and I had no idea!  My work is about 30 minutes away from her school so I was so thankful that my mom was home and able to go get her (she lives about 5 minutes from the school).  I felt so bad about it all day - I even let her watch TV in the afternoon!  Thankfully, she didn't take it nearly as bad as I did - she seemed to think it was cool to get to wait in the office and color.  And luckily I wasn't the only forgetful parent - another little girl (a friend in her class) was waiting with her :)  Anyway, I guess you can't be perfect all the time!

  1. Being imperfect makes us better parents! You guys are fortunate to have your family close by. My sister and I were both left behind/forgotten at school - once my sister had to wait outside the Hermiston Library because it closed and my parents were so late getting to her....
