Apparently we are bad parents

Over the weekend Chris asked if I could pick up the girls on Wednesday because he had a meeting after school....but, I thought that I also had a meeting. So he said that even though his was at the high school he thought that he would just bring them and that they were old enough to sit in the back and color or read or write and not distract people. That was how we left it. I got his email when I got home that he would be a little later, but with no mention of the girls. I foolishly assumed that he had them. Now, we all know what happens when you assume things....

He just walked in. He looked at me. I looked at him. He was wondering why the house was so quiet and I was wondering why he closed the door to the garage before letting the children in.

Yep, we both failed to pick them up. Apparently, we are bad parents.

So I hope you've since picked them up, right? :)

so, what happens when you don't pick them up? we take jasper (our dog) to daycare here in athens. i guess if we didn't pick him up, they'd just board him for the night. but ... and correct me if i'm wrong here ... i don't think that service is available for humans.
