A few months ago it happened! And that wasn't the first or the last.
So the week before we had got our parent newsletter and was also was reminded when we picked up Eliada from school that there was no school on Monday, we remembered all weekend also, excited that it would be a 3-day weekend for her.
Well, Monday came, I got up, did Eliadas hair and got dressed. Yvette, our oldest gets a ride from my mom because she works right across the street and they did have school. So she was gone and then I left with Eliada a few minutes later. We had the radio up and singing. We talked about what the week held for us and such. We had totally forgot that there was no school.
It hit me right when we turned the intersection! There were no cars in front, where the teachers park. And I yelled, literally, "Eliada!! You have no school today!" We drove to the pick-up/drop-off area and there was a line of cars. The gate doesn't open till 7:15 and we were a bit early. I drove up to the cars, rolled down my window and said, "There's no school today. We just remembered!" The look on their faces, it was the same as mine when I remembered. #MOMFAIL!
It was a gloomy day and I had scheduled a walk/run date with a friend of mine. So I brought her along. It was on the chilly side and Eliada didn't have a jacket, but I did have my mai tai carrier, so on my back she went. We did two miles, boy was it a workout!
So, my mom fail wasn't that horrible. We spent the rest of the day together till we had to pick up Yvette from school.
Check out my weekly vlog to laugh at me more, lol! Tell me I'm not the only one!
