When Teacher He told us that Saturday was Craft Day at the preschool, we weren’t sure what to do. Hubs already had a commitment and he felt terrible for missing another one of Schäfer’s special activities. The parenting guilt was heavy on both our hearts.
We decided that since Sianna doesn’t like people, she would go with Hubs and sit in the Ergo… for a few hours. (Being in the Ergo is Sianna’s most favorite place.)
I would take Selah and Schäfer to the Craft Day because I assumed this would be crafts for Schäfer to make. Selah and I would cheer him from the sideline.
I assumed wrong.
Meanwhile, I was handed a cardboard box and told to make Schäfer a sun or a butterfly. Of course, this was super fun for me with Selah in my lap grabbing the scissors!
I looked around to see all of the parents making the crafts for their children! Huh?
After the butterfly was complete and the Children’s Day certificate was received, we were told to go upstairs for more fun. When we got there we found the entire cafeteria filled with little computers.
I called Hubs immediately to put his mind at ease and release any guilt he might be feeling. I can’t believe we were going to change Hubs schedule so that he could come!
This computer was strategically offered just before Children’s day – a time when parents traditionally buy their child a nice gift.
It’s as if he was saying, “Mommy, I’ll just wait for the iPad to come down in price.” (Hubs was so proud.)
