My fails this year are pretty much all little M’s fault, thankfully there were only two major fails, but still…little M’s fault.
My first fail came from my baby girl mishearing/misunderstanding her PE teacher’s name. Little M came home the first week of school, and said that she loved Mr. Big Tie. He was funny, and he made up songs about cardio, and she loved PE. I thought the PE teacher had given himself the name Big Tie to be funny…make the kids laugh.
Well. No. His name is Mr. McTigh. MCTIGH! I have called him Mr. Big Tie at least once, maybe even twice. I found out last week what his name really is, so I have been so wrong all year…
Next year I will do better. Ha.
My second fail came on picture day in the Spring. It was the second picture day of the year, and our first picture day was a huge success. I had huge hopes for our second picture day…after all, this is the picture that goes in the yearbook, so for posterity’s sake, it has to be a good one. I even bought a super cute outfit for little M for the big day. When the big day arrived, I forgot it was the big day. I had the picture day outfit hanging on her closet door, but little M pulled a different outfit from her closet. It’s an outfit she loves, and having forgotten that it was picture day, I agreed that she could wear her chosen outfit. That evening I remembered that is was, indeed picture day. Sad.
She knew though. Little M knew, and she knew what outfit she wanted to wear. And when picture time came, she was beyond proud to show off… what can I say?
Next year, friends, next year is a new year.
