Shortcake began Mother’s Day Out this morning.
We spent a majority of the weekend assembling all the items she’d need, labeling them and getting ready to make the first day as easy as possible.
That is, until, we had an epic Daddy-fail! See, Daddy was in charge of lunch and snacks. So last night, we assembled the snacks and lunch, carefully labeling each Ziplock bag with the proper information and getting them ready. But instead of Daddy putting all the baggies into Shortcake’s lunch box, he only put in the components of lunch.
Fast forward to this morning. We made a special first-day breakfast, had the proper outfit picked out, got the items together to take to school, and headed out the door for our big adventure. Pictures were taken (before it began raining, no less!) and we dropped off Shortcake in her new classroom. Only to find that Daddy had been so focused on getting everything else done that (Epic Daddy-fail!) he forgot to include the snacks!
Feeling like a contender for Worst-Daddy-EVER, we scrambled to the local grocery store and purchased more snacks and a new box of Ziplock bags. All pieces quickly assembled, we dropped ’em off and everything is good, except the feeling of epic Daddy-fail.
The good news is that when I dropped off the snacks, it allowed me to see that Shortcake had adjusted to her new adventure and was having a great time. (Dropping her off, she burst into tears when Daddy put her down so he could discover his epic Daddy-fail).
