Worst Mom of the Year Award

by | Sep 1, 2010 | This Lefe Family

Well, I was humbled again today to qualify for the “Worst Mom of the Year Award.”  I forgot to pick Zach up after school.
I was sitting at a table at Mission of Hope today having a discussion with some patrons, when I felt my phone in my pocket vibrate.  I took it out, saw it was Zach calling, and my heart sank.  It was 3:30…I’m ususally there to pick him up at 3:00.  I completely forgot about picking him up…didn’t even think about it once.

I flew up from the table, grabbed my purse, and ran out the door.  Fighting back the tears for feeling like a terrible mom, I raced to school (but didn’t break any speed limits).  Fifteen minutes later I was pulling up in front of the school.  Zach was sitting by himself out front, with maybe only two others waiting for rides as well.  I felt horrible!  I apologized profusely after he got in the car, and he acted like it was no big deal.  To me, though, it was.  Bless his heart.

All day I was “off.”  I couldn’t remember things.  I felt unorganized and unhelpful.  I just wasn’t myself.  Two days of this is enough!  It’s a wonder I didn’t forget Ali’s volleyball game tonight!  Will I ever get a handle on this new schedule?  🙂

I’m thankful I love a forgiving God, and thankful I have a forgiving son!  Tomorrow WILL be better!
