So these are going to end up being kind of long, sorry about that. But it’s been one hell of a week! thank god I’m meeting a friend for a slumber party girls night at her house on sat. I so need it after this crazy week.
It’s been so crazy that i can’t even remember all that has built up each day. I meant to blog about it as it happened because I know that helps, but it was just one more thing in my day that I couldn’t get to.
So back to Monday. Hubby worked 3 days this week, so I knew the week would go funky, it’s hard cause he is not here for 6 mornings, even though he works 3 days. I was trying to prepare for that and my crazy scheduling. Day had little things here and there and I was super tired. Then got home and son is sick and staying home. Wonderful, well I can’t cancel one of my appoitments, you’ll have to stay in the car for it. Ok, no problem, game boy right? WRONG, we get here to the gym and it is out of battery. Well that is going to be boring as hell for him, but nothing I can do now.
Thinking that I can come back to the gym later when daughter gets home, it’s Monday night in Jan. the place is packed and I want some new clients. Daughter texts to remind me it’s yearbook after school. Shit, ok, nothing I can do about that. Figure I’ll still hit the gym when she gets home, activity bus usually gets here by 4:15. So by 4:30 I’m kind of starting to worry and call her. The bus driver didn’t map it out very well and they are going back and forth dropping people off. She’s talking to me about needing to go to Carly’s because they need to talk to the police. WHAT! Can’t hear her very well because the bus is loud, so I tell her we will talk about it when she gets home.
Getting home was after 5. YUCK! That was way too long on that bus. Sitting there eating dinner and she starts telling me that there was a guy on the side of the road on New Year’s eve with his pants down when they drove by. WHAT? k, not happy. It’s been 14 days and this is the first I’m hearing about it. She didn’t think it was that important is what she tells me. I said if the parents called the police then don’t you think it was important enough to tell me?
So I was blowing it off at first, then realized I had to suck it up and take her over. We grab one of the other girls on the way. Get more of the story from the mom and then the officer. Guess he was also doing something while he had his pants down. So the reason she didn’t say anything was out of embarrassment. K, i understand that, but how am I going to tackle this now?
We still haven’t dealt with this because it’s been something every day and hubby hasn’t been home. It’s going to be a long weekend.
My main concern is that she didn’t talk to anyone about it. Also, I drive 3 of the 4 girls to school EVERY morning and there was never any mention about it. They usually slip up when they aren’t supposed to talk about stuff. lol But I’m concerned because I don’t want to be my parents. If this had happenedto me, I would have never told my parents. There are many bad things that they do not know and will never know. I do not want that relationship with my daughter, but it’s so hard to talk about this stuff. I really have to step up and be the adult.
