Oh my word. Guess what I forgot to do today? I forgot to pick up our son from school. Yup. There I was feeling like a competent adult, even perhaps a good mom, chatting with the other moms at the homeschool play date when I realized that I had done the unthinkable on only the second day of school. I wasn't delayed by a mishap, or traffic, or anything else forgivable, I had just straight-up clean forgotten him.
This is worse than the day I forgot to go to class; I was the teacher.
