Baby Boy got an invitation to a birthday party for a classmate from preschool. It was for today after school, outside, where the kids would get wet. I declined the invitation, for a few reasons:
1. It's a school night...I still have to make sure that Little Boy gets his homework finished, it's due every Friday.
2. It's a million degrees outside. I would be miserable, sitting and watching him play with water, while I'm having a heatstroke. (We have a swimming pool that I've been taking him every afternoon.)
3. I don't know one mother or father in the group. I've been to a couple of the functions there, and never really connected with anyone. So I'd basically be sitting by myself for two hours (while sweating, don't forget the sweating part).
4. Oldest Boy needs to go pick up his tuxedo...so I would then have to take Little Boy to the party also, and have to deal with that.
I just don't know. I thought it would be okay, I didn't mention it anymore to Baby Boy, thought I'd made it without a scene. Until someone at school brought it up...I should have known...ugh.
Now he's crying these big, huge tears. And I feel like a total schmuck. I'm overwhelmed with the stuff here sometimes, and honestly, just couldn't see adding anything else to my plate. What a mess.
I'll be taking him in the pool again today, and making him some chocolate chip cookies...and maybe buying him a new car or something...*sigh*
