A parental fail and wednesday weigh

Yesterday I got that call.
You know the one from your kids school, where you answer thinking it must be a sick kid or something because it is only 1:50 and they don't get out of school until 3. I answered and there was an adorable little voice and all she said was, "hi mom." I of course answered with "what's wrong baby? Are you not feeling well?" She ignored my question and said, "we are in the office." And at that moment I realized I completely forgot that it was early release and they had gotten out of school at 1:30!
 I then proceeded to accidentally hang up on my sweet child while trying to gather my other two and get in the car as quickly as possible.  I called the school from the car, apologized and let them know I was on my way.  I snapped this picture after getting them.  William is not amused but Jordan is super happy because they had asked her what my number was and she remembered it and was able to call me, she was very proud. 
I made up for it by taking them to get ice cream from McDonald's.  Ice cream fixes everything right? 
I hate that I forgot them, my mom did this to me and my siblings on a weekly basis growing up and I hated it.  Of course, now being older I know she didn't actually forget us she just got caught up in other things, still, I hated it and never wanted to do it to my kids.  Oops. 
Funny though, I rushed out of the house so fast that I didn't notice I had put on two different flip flops, must have been what was closest to the door.  =)
On to my Wednesday weigh in, I am down from yesterday but still up from where I was before Christmas.  Oh well, at least the scale is moving in the right direction again.  So I weighed in this morning at 175.2. 
Happy Wednesday!


  1. Lol, love the mismatched flipflops. = ) I didn't even notice until you said something though!! He looks mad in his picture lol. I'm having my first ever guest post. Please visit my post at my blog and my guest poster's blog too and leave a comment if you get a chance. = )
    Happy Wednesday!

  2. Ok, I did this about a month ago. I felt TERRIBLE!!!! My biggest fear is that I won't be at school on time to get my son and he'll be worried and scared. So I did it, but luckily he came walking out as his happy-go-lucky self. Phew. But boy was I mortified!!!! I felt like such a chump! So I'm glad to read this (selfishly) b/c I know now I'm not the only one. But gah!!! Never again!!!! :)

    congrats on being down some! Keep up the hard work!

  3. Kids are resilient, hopefully they will forget. YAY for the loss on the scale!

  4. shame, shame, shame!!! I always fear this will happen to me!!! :)
