heee heee heee, I'll get you my pretty and your little dog too!

Today i did it. i was the mean mom. found out last night that
Taylor gave up doing homework for the last 2 weeks now. gave it up for lent? who knows?!? Taylor is known for her incredibly bad timing. she never seems to have the foresight that what she is doing today could very well affect her badly tomorrow. she just does it and hangs on and hopes for the best. well she was hanging on tight that i would not find out her dirty little secret and she would blissfully go on an awesome field trip today with her school band. trip to an AMUSEMENT park in New Hampshire people! no school all day , ride rides, eat junk, laugh and giggle with your silly school friends, and come home really late. but no Taylor is sitting right now in a room in school doing make up work (i hope) since today is the end of her last grading period. she has no other opportunity to make up what she has put off so badly. so yes she hates me today, but no more than i hate myslef. you can hear "you're doing the right thing" from everyone, doesn't make it hurt any less. i hated doing it. i hate that she put me in this position. i feel like the wicked witch. a bit of foreshadowing yesterday. leaving the Wal-Mart parking lot i spotted what i thought was a funny "bumpah stickah" said, "nothing has quite been the same since that house fell on my sister."

i cried the whole way home after dropping her at school.

So glad I'm not there yet. Sorry she made you be the mean mom, but you know in the long run she'll understand, maybe not till she's a mom, but it'll happen!
