Such A Monday

Anna woke me up for the third time, it was finally 6:30am though so I decided to go ahead and get up. I cooked some biscuits, got Carly up and ready for school, dropped her off at school and headed home to shower. Anna and I got ready and loaded up for the 45 minute trip to Denton for her GI appointment. I had been in deep thought about this appointment for awhile and was so glad it was finally here. We got to Denton at about 10:15 and her appointment was at 10:30. I was doing SO good! We went to the desk to check in and I told the receptionist we were a few minutes early. Turns out we were a few days early, the appointment isn't until Friday. UGH. We drove back home. At least Anna took a little nap in the car. I had a nice lunch with my mom. Anna refused to eat anything. I came home and chilled for a bit and went to pick Carly up from school. Carly is a compliant kid who really aims to please. She is very afraid of being in trouble. She is a nervous Nellie. She attended the same school for 2 1/2 years and never once got in trouble. I know that is impossible to believe but it is true. She was just that good. Well, all good things must come to an end. And they did. Today. I am not blaming it on the new school, that just happened to be the scene of the crime. I walked to Carly's classroom and her teacher met me at the door to inform me that Carly had a bad day. I assumed this meant she had been whiny or something. I was so wrong. Instead, she decided during nap time that she didn't want to nap so she got under a desk and took a marker and colored the carpet. She had an accomplice and they were both sent promptly to the Principal's office. They got to spend the afternoon's playtime scrubbing and cleaning the carpet. Nice!! She got quite a lecture from Kenneth and I, she had to write an apology to her teacher, and she is not allowed to use any art supplies (her favorite things) for a week. She is devastated but I am pretty sure she gets the point.

"Dear Ms. Blankenship, I am sorry for coloring on the carpet. I will not do it again. Carly"


  1. I am so glad that you took a picture of her note. That will be a fun memory someday.

  2. Little stinker! :) I agree with the other comment...great memory to photograph.
