Okay- my first real day of classes. I get THE phone call no "mom who is going back to school" wants to get.
It's 9:30 and my class starts at 9:50 (strange hour I know.)
the phone rings
I answer it
It's one of the ladies in my babysitting swap group.
(Three moms, 3 two year olds, two of us are going back to school so we are swapping babysitting services.)
It's C- in our swap group, "Hey Swirl, B- called and she is in town , so we're not having play group today."
Me- "um.. is everything okay with B- family?? Why is she in town?"
C- "uh.. I don't know. She just called and said she was in town and couldn't babysit today."
Me- "uh.. so are you doing it?"
C- "No. I can't I told a friend I would drive her around and show her the local shops."
Me- "uh... I HAVE CLASS today! So..... thinking... thinking...stauling... hoping she will babysit the hour for me and postpone any plan she has .... "
C- "oh dear.. I'm sorry .. I can't... B- must have forgotten."
Me-" yeah. Well I better go. I need to figure out what I am going to do with my 3 year old!"
ARG! That is one of my fears about going back to school with a little one. But B- did it all last year with out a glitch. And we pinkie promised /swore to each other that EVEN if kids or we were sick- we would STILL babysit .. so we didn't put each other in a position to have to scramble for a sitter for classes. (it's just one hour- not a full day.)
Whatever... I'm over it. I was able to go to class. Here is my first assignment. (I had to create a blog.) Any class that has me blogging for an assignment is A-okay!
