Last year at their old school, I volunteered all the time. I was part of the PTO, and helped with all types Of functions during school and outside of school. It was a small school (my son had been attending for 4 years.. He is 7 now) and it was a tight knit "community", like family - only 175 kids TOTAL, compared to the 800 at their new school
The ex and I agreed (stupidly of me) to send them to a new school, which is 35 min away from me this year
I don't have anything to do with the school on a personal level.
It's too far, too big, and the people there are just plain rude (I've tried at the beginning of the year to get acquainted with the new teachers and principle, but I'm one parent out of probably a 1,000 parents.)
Well, my 6 yr old tell me that parents are allowed to be there today, but I didn't go. I wanted to be there with him, but first of all, he didn't tell me till this morning ON the way to school, and I didn't bother to put on any makeup, I didn't really fix my hair (lol) and didn't bother to put on a bra.. (I just drop them off out front in the circular drive and they walk to their class bunch and teachers)
I feel SO guilty for not going. I really do. I can't shake that terrible feeling I have. I did EVERYTHING with both of my boys last year. Yes, I was THAT mom, but this year, I suck. /:
My DH says I shouldn't feel guilty since we live so far anyhow, and that he wouldn't remember today.
But I will..
Am I being overly sensitive here /:
