I failed yesterday

I took dd(11) to dance.  I walked her up to the door, made sure she was in, and ran to pick up a Christmas present.  I got back and dd was still sitting in the waiting area.  I asked why....She said I dropped her off too early  Derp.  At least everyone was up there.  She and the girls on her dance team were running through some choreography.

I don't think that's a fail. Showing up late would've been a fail, IMO.

Accidents happen and she was fine, don't beat yourself up.

I'm not seeing the fail part.  You made a human error because you're, you know, human.  And getting there a little early and hanging out with her other dance friends  without her mommy right there isn't exactly a crime.

*Ugh I'm such a failure!   I did this minor, inconsequential thing that had no negative bearing on my kid whatsoever!"  

Parents are so weird these days.  I don't get it.

 I just felt bad because I thought we were running late and made her a sandwich and chips for her dinner.  When I could have fed her more.  I sent her off with snacks.  But I had my nights switched.  We spend so much time there you would think I had this down.
