Got a letter in the mail on Thursday from my son's new teacher about open house today at 6pm. Perfect, I thought, because I'd taken today off of work to tie up last minute school stuff (doctors appt, shopping, etc.) plus my husband had off.
So we get there and as the other parents start filing in I notice none of them brought their kids. We had our son with us, he played quietly in the corner (thank God). As the meeting went on I kept hearing other parents ask questions about what the kids should bring tomorrow and I began to freak because I swore school started on Wednesday!!!
At the end of the meeting I pulled out the letter and re-read it and sure enough it stated that tonight's meeting was for parents ONLY and there is another tomorrow at 9am for parents and students. School does start Wednesday. I was mortified!! Luckily he was pretty well behaved while we were there but OMG I felt dumb. In my defense, last week was crazy busy but still. We can't attend tomorrow anyway because I'd already taken off most of last week while we were out of town, plus today. So it's sorta good he got to meet his teacher and see the class before hand. But way to make an impression right!? I apologized to the teacher who was of course nice about it. But now I'm "that" mom. Ugh.
Just a vent, but I guess I need a question. Have you ever been "that" mom? Lol.
