Ds school feild trip to the zoo is today, Dh has to chaperone due to ds allergy to goat dander, dh has to give him the benadryl since the teacher is not allowed...
Anywho... ds has been so excited that daddy gets to go on the feild trip with him, hes been talking about it all weekend.. DH has been reluctant - not wanting to be with a bunch of screaming kids, plus he is sooooo not a morning person. I would have went, but that would mean i would be missing a days pay from work, so with dh bein a sahd, we figured it was more cost sensible for him to go and I can go to work.
I get a call this morning at my office from DH saying that ds doesnt want to go to the feild trip. I was like WHAT? The kid who has been bouncing off the walls all weekend in excitement that daddy gets to go with him to the zoo with his class - the kid who loves the zoo - suddenly doesnt want to go!!!
It really just pissed me off, i know that dh had to have said something to him that made him change his mind - ds is 6y - very impressionable. What a dick move - just because dh is being a little baby about going, he has to ruin it for ds.
When dh called me at work to tell me that ds said he doesnt want to go, i asked to speak to ds - when i asked him if he really wanted to stay behind while his whole class goes, he said that he was going to go, but the way he said it was as if he didnt want to upset daddy bu saying yes.
To me this is important for ds - especially having a parent chaperone - it really pisses me off that dh would try and take that memory away from ds, just because he doesnt want to get his lazy ass out of bed. If he didnt want to go - i would have taken off of work and said f*ck it to a days pay - in which i have asked dh repeatedly if he wanted me to take off and go, but he insisted that he would chaperone and that i go to work.
A lasting memory for ds is more important to me than missing 1 day at work.. so now im sitting here at the office, heated and worried that dh didnt take him - dh phone ran out of minutes this morning, so i have no way to confirm that they went.
UPDATE: They both went on the feild trip, Ds didnt even need his allergy medicine since there were no goats at the petting zoo. Overall they both said they had fun. DH maintains that DS was the one who didnt want to go, but i still feel that he had some influence on that decision. All that matters is that they went and they had fun.
