It looks like I might be back in the running for Mother of the Year for 2010. After today, in fact, I’m in pretty good standing.
Jake was working from home today, so we went out to lunch. A friend that Jake plays ball with happened to be there with his wife, so we sat at the bar with them, on a Thursday afternoon, and kicked back a couple.
That doesn’t exactly put me in the running, but, this next part does…
Jake’s phone rang and I noticed that it was the school. Immediately thinking that one of my heathen boys were into trouble, I answered the call.
It was actually Lily’s teacher. Calling for our scheduled phone conference. That I’d forgotten about. Caught off guard, and pretending that I hadn’t forgotten about our appointment, I chatted with Lily’s teacher.
When I hung up, it dawned on me that I’d just had a parent/teacher conference AT A BAR!
At a FREAKIN’ BAR!!
I should start working on my acceptance speech now!!
