It was her first dance recital. She is 4. Our youngest is still a baby and my DH was supposed to meet us at the recital so he could hold her. I was supposed to be ON stage with my 4 year old. My friend (whos DD is in the show too) said if DH couldnt get there in time from work her mom would hold her. I said okay, ill save you seats. I called and told her where we were sitting and waited for 45 mins. She didnt answer or text me back after I called to tell her where we were sitting. My DH couldnt get off work in time to hold our youngest, because we had to go back stage 30 min before she went on for the show and we couldnt bring the baby. So all her classmates were going back stage and we had to put our coats on and leave. We were both in tears. I told the teacher and everything and the teacher was so sad for her... I texted my friend a few more times and she never texted back. I didnt see her back stage either. So we got all ready for the dance recital, hair, a little make up to make her feel special, and all dressed up in the expensive costumes we had to buy... all just for a huge let down. :( I know I shouldnt be mad at my husband because I told him my friends mom would hold our youngest but I still cant help but be annoyed with him because I told him about this so long ago and he had a lot of time to get off work for her FIRST ever recital.
