Labeled

Posted by: , March 5, 2008 in 7:33 pm


There was a storm in our area last night and the kids woke up at 5:00 AM. I lied down with my 3 year old in his room and unbeknownst to me, my husbund allowed my kindergartner to watch TV so he never fell back asleep. By the time we were leaving for school, he was exhausted. The school called me at 1:00 PM and said that he had fallen asleep in art class. His head was on top of his project. I had to go pick him up. When I showed up the nurse said, “He told me that he was watching televison at 5:00 this morning?!” She was looking at me like I was the worst mom ever. As I was picking up some groceries later that day, I ran into a mother from his class. She says to me, “I heard he was up really late watching TV and fell asleep in class!” I tried to explain that that wasn’t what happened. Actually pointing out that it was his father’s fault but I don’t think she believed me. I’ve officially been “labeled” a “badmommy”.
