Today I forgot to pick up my child. I actually forgot to pick her up or arrange for someone else to pick her up. She was left at school. She had to call me.
I quickly sent my husband to go get her, but she knew we forgot her. I live in constant fear of doing just this thing! With 3 children, and so many schedules and events to keep up with, I constantly wonder “What am I forgetting????” That is a chronic source of stress and anxiety for me.
The bad thing is, she knew we forgot her. When I got home, that’s the first thing she said to me, “You forgot me,” in a sad little voice. There was no way to play this off. Oh, could I feel any smaller!???!!
I did. I admit it. I forgot that my middle school daughter did not have cheer practice today and had to be picked up at a different time. There goes my nomination for “Mother of the Year.” AGAIN!!
I feel like I am constantly juggling so many things – practices, games, work, chores, shopping, church, etc…. Most of the time I do a pretty good job of keeping it all up in the air – even with near misses. I guess sooner or later, one of the balls has to drop when you keep adding more and more.
For this reason, I am my least favorite today : (
