Â Â Many people out there are in the same predicament that I am right now. Itâ€™s May which meansâ€¦ Oh No!! Schoolâ€™s out soon! Donâ€™t get me wrong, I love my children and we love to take trips during the summer. BUT I have to get them involved with something so they donâ€™t drive mom nuts in between those trips ect. So what do I do? I go on mad search at our gym and any other place for camps that I can enroll them into. My kids get out of school tomorrow so Iâ€™m desperate. Iâ€™m looking through the long list hoping to find anything that still has two openings left. At this point they donâ€™t get a choice of what they will be enrolled in – Scrapbooking, Beginning Knitting, Swimming, arts n crafts, Baking, Dance. Have I mentioned one is a running back and the other one is a quarter back and were born to play football? Their choices arenâ€™t looking too good.
Â Â Â Â So while Iâ€™m in mad search mode and ready to pull my hair out, â€œITâ€ walks up to me. I am looking through lists like a mad woman when this woman approaches me,
â€œAre you looking to enroll your children?â€ Iâ€™m quietly thinking – well, no I thought Iâ€™d enroll myself-DUH. I smile politely â€œYes, summer snuck up on us this year and I need to find something for my kids to do.â€ Nice, was the angle I was going for, since she was holding a little girl and her 7ish little boy was standing next to her. Then she opened her mouth:
â€œIf you had been more prepared you might have found a sports camp. Now you are going to be stuck with the camps that no one wants.â€
Have you ever had the urge to throw a clipboard at someone you donâ€™t know?
Like I didnâ€™t have a clue that this was a last minute thing? Itâ€™s not like I found the kids on the corner as I was walking into the joint- This isnâ€™t our first BBQ. We normally have them enrolled by now. BUT things came up. An eerie calm came over me at this point.
â€œYeah, it is last minute.â€ Short and sweet â€“thatâ€™s meÂ Yeah RIGHT.
â€œIt sure is. Good luckâ€ with this she turned away and marched down the busy hall. I stood there watching for a minute, Not because of the shock of her boldness. But because where she was carting her daughter and her gym bag her skirt was bunched up in the back showing off a bright pink THONG. Hum. Do I tell her? Nahhh I let her and all her glory march out of the building and through the parking lot.
Itâ€™s good to be me!
P.S the kids will be enrolled in swimming, Although I think it might be funny to enroll them in the knitting class.
