Mom fail

I’ve literally been counting the minutes.

As much as I love the texts telling me how well things are going, and the fact that the bathroom stays MUCH cleaner, I have really, really missed my boy since I left him in Ontario for university.

So that wonderful creation called reading break has arrived, and all day I’ve been giggling and wheee-ing (not weeing!😉) to myself that I get to see him tonight.

His room is clean. I’ve bought his favourite groceries and left some treats on his bed. My husband and I have discussed how we’ll split the driving to pick the girls up from rehearsal at 7:30, and our son from the airport at 11:16pm. As usual, he’s going to do both because that’s the wonderful kind of guy he is.

So, all I had to do was wait in anticipation.

Around 5pm, I get all excited that he must be on the plane and on his way.

At 5:15pm, I get a text: “Where are you guys?”


Um, yeah. Nice welcome home. Poor kid had to cool his heels for 45 minutes until we got to the airport.

Note to self: Double check arrival/departure times ON THE DAY. This is not the first time something like this has happened. #brainfog

Good thing we all have a good sense of humour.

Now it’s time to enjoy having the clan back together. This is one happy Mama!!!

❤️ Amanda

  1. Oh Amanda, I am so very happy for you that you get to spend some time with your son! I have a son in college but he is currently living at home and I know I would miss him bunches and bunches! I have a daughter leaving for college next fall and I am already wondering how and the heck I am going to handle missing her so much.
    Enjoy every moment……..he is a lucky kid to have you as his mom!

    1. Thanks so much Wendi. It is so wonderful to have him home and hear all about his adventures. It is hard when they go, but it certainly helps that he’s doing exactly what he wants to be doing, and is having great success. I wish the same things for you next year. Our oldest is still home too so we didn’t know what to expect. They grew up so fast, hey? You are such a sweetheart, your kids are lucky to have you! 💕

      1. Yes, they grow up in a blink of an eye and my heart is having a hard time letting go! My oldest is also still at home so my next one planning on leaving is a whole next experience.
        Bless you for your kindness and thank you for sharing this story, it is nice to read how well your son is doing and how happy you are for him!
        I pray today is treating you well Amanda.
