Do You Play Hooky?
Girlie Girl had a piano class to go to and I just wasn’t in the mood to take her. Unfortunately, DH was away on a trip so I was the only option. All day while she was at school, I kept going back and forth on the subject in my head.
*She should go because she just had a 2-week break, but the weather looks bad. She should go because the class is already paid for, but I’ll probably get stuck in traffic on the way home. She should go because she needs to practice, but Baby Bug is just getting over a cold. Blah blah blah.*
So what did I do? Yup, we stayed home. A part of me felt guilty yet another part felt relieved that we didn’t have to go.
I think sometimes we all need to take a little break from our every day parental responsibilities. So she didn’t go to piano class. Is that such a crime? Instead I just had her practice a little extra longer that night at home and she was totally fine with it. I just explained to her that we all needed a break today.
What about you? Do you sometimes play hooky, too?
