Bad Mom, Oh the Guilt

Today is field trip day to a local nature center for Young One. It's on, rain or shine, the permission slip said. And it's pouring. And, what do we find out this morning? His, what I thought was a rain jacket, is not really a rain jacket. It's a wind breaker.

I just got off the phone with a friend of mine who is chaperoning the field trip. She said, isn't it great that we'll find out that their rain gear works before the four day fifth grade trip this weekend? I told her our situation and the hope that they wouldn't be outside all day. She was silent. I asked her to give him a garbage bag if it gets bad. She laughed.

The guilt. I feel so bad.

This is supposed to be my job and I royally screwed up today. I hate this feeling.


  1. Hey, we've all been there. What I hate is that my daughter's RAINCOAT isn't very rainproof. Time to find a shiny rain slicker.

  2. We all have those days girl!

    Last week when I made the kids lunchs I gave all three of them the wrong sandwiches. I realized after they all got on their buses....BAD MOMMA!!


I triple dog dare you to comment.

Taking a little time to play with words, to play with food, and just to play!
