shot down

So Ry's off to a sleepover tonight and Darcy's plans for the same were never finalized.

I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for a mother-daughter date.

I looked up movie times, but was willing to leave the plan to her.  We could make one of her faves, eat out or get take out.  We could go to the movies or rent one.  We could play games, go bowling, go shopping, ... The possibilities were endless.

I leave the hospital to go pick her up at school.  I surprise her in the school yard and ask her for a date night.

She shoots me down.  She didn't even take two seconds to think about it.  Flat out no.

She doesn't even want a drive home.  She'd rather take the bus with her friends.

I'm hurt.  I'm sad.  I'm frustrated.  But I understand.

When she does get home she's quick to tell me that plans have been made and a sleepover is allowed.  It's all just the matter of a telephone call to finalize the details.  And so it is done. 

These girls better want to sleep tonight because this momma sure does!!

  1. Wow...the girls are getting older. But what a great thing that they have friends to share their childhood with. After the quick tinge of hurt, I hope you got over it, had a deserving bubble bath and a great sleep! Hoping for a good weekend.
    Love ya
