Today’s To-Do List contains “Gut the Offspring’s bedroom”. (And by proxy this means “sort out all toys and junk to sell at next yard sale”, “sort out all toys and junk to be donated away” and “sort out all garbage and recyclables”.)
Can you tell I’m just ecstatic about this?
On top of it all, the Offspring went into hysterics when I tried to drop her off at camp today. She seemed excited to go over breakfast, but when we got there, it was a different story. So I ended up doing the old “bait and switch”, leaving her distracted and sneaking out the door.
I know she’s fine, and the camp hasn’t called me, but it doesn’t help when the last thing you see is your child’s crying face. *sigh* I also know she needs a little bit of “toughening up”…but that’s hard. (I’m sure all parents out there will agree with me!)
Of course, this does not make me feel any better, nor any less like a Very Bad Mom. Such is life, I suppose.
I hope you all have a better day than me!
