We were planning to play hookey tomorrow.
Me and my girl.
But as Marsha Brady once said, "Something suddenly came up."
The kid doesn't want to miss school.
What she said: There's a "really special assembly tomorrow and I really don't want to miss it."
What I heard: "Mom, you suck. I'd rather spend time at the mill than be with you."
I know that's not what she meant.
But dammit if I wasn't looking forward to the day off.
And really? MY KID WANTS to go to SCHOOL? Have I not taught ANYthing?
I've failed as a parent.
