Now, please know that I realize that I am not the worst mom ever! But sometimes I feel like it.
1. I just ordered Phyllis's senior pics like a week ago! If you're wondering why you haven't gotten your thank you card yet, that's why. I'm an idiot. No excuses, I'm an idiot.
2. I wish I would have saved for her college. I know that, especially in the early years, there wasn't much to save, and as a single mom who never received a dime of child support things have been tough and tight always, but I wish I would have saved more. I feel like I should have, even if it was $1000 a year, that's less than $100 a month. I didn't have $100 a month? really? I'm not fabulous with the finances but sheesh, what a failure!
3. Yesterday I yelled her for something that was bothering me but I shouldn't have gotten mad about and yelled. No need to get upset, we could have just talked about it.
4. I yelled at her about locking her keys in her car in Jackson (and i was in Kalamazoo) and the extra key was at home. Ok, really, does it matter? The worst thing would have been that I had to drive all the way home but really I didn't even have to, I called road assistance and paid $35! big deal! but why did I get so upset? It really wasn't worth it.
I don't want sympathy, I'm just saying... I might lose my mother of the year award (LOL like I'd even be in the running for that!). So all you peeps (the two of you) who think I'm a good mom... there you have it... I suck.
