Okay its not really a conspiracy but its annoying. I have 2 high school freshman. They go to different schools. The schools have scheduled their parent teacher conference on the same night at the same time. They used to do two, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. I could work with that. But now this marking period its only at night from 6-9. Next marking period its only in the afternoon. It is not possible for me to be at both at the same time. The schools are no where near one another and getting from one to the other will take at least an hour. (if I'm lucky) its at a minimum of 2 trains. My dd wants me to go to hers alot and my son well he's not that excited for me to go which means I should see his. Truth is my dd's grades will be either perfect or close to it and I'll wait 10 plus minutes per teacher to get a 30 second conference of them telling me how great a student my daughter is. But she wants me to be there and i feel horrilbe that I might not be able to.
