Parental Guilt, aaarggghhh!
I sent both my boys off to school this morning, even though the youngest was saying he didn't feel well. He hadn't been sick, had eaten a little something for breakfast but was cheery enough to play draughts with his brother after breakfast.
Today, as I said in my first post of the day, is Sta David's Day, or should I say
Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus!
The boys are taking part in a celebration with songs and poems which I am going to watch after lunch. I think Alfie was worried because he didn't know all the words to one of the poems and he had a bit of a meltdown so I think this was more of the problem than anything else.
I still had a knot in my stomach feeling bad about sending him. I called school and explained saying I had put a banana and his fruit money in his bag should he be hungry before lunch. I felt sure if he had stayed at home he would have been jumping around by 10.30am and I cannot have the boys pulling a fast one. Call me harsh but I would rather send them and then fetch them home if they deteriorate. I have the car today only because I am going to school for the thing, otherwise I cannot fetch them early. Ho hum. School hasn't called yet so I suppose all is well.
