See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My girl just started pre-k in January and she's only going 2 half-days a week, just to warm her up for the fall when she starts Kindergarten. They had a Valentine's Day party and we signed up to bring cookies. I asked the teachers if we needed to bring anything else and they said no. For some reason it didn't occur to me until that morning that maybe we should get valentines. She was probably the only kid who didn't bring something for the others. I feel SO HORRIBLE for her, even though she seems to feel it's no big deal, but I know what that feels like to be the only kid not prepared, and for her to experience that so young breaks my heart. And it's ALL. MY. FAULT. That's why I'm up at 4am typing about this, because it keeps turning itself in my head and my heart aches for her. I keep beating myself up about it and I can't stop thinking of it. I am SO STUPID!!! Why didn't I think of that? It was too late by that morning to go get some before school. I'm so sad for her. :( :( :(
