The 6th grade returned from its two day trip to Boston early Saturday morning (really early 2 a.m.) and they are off to a field trip for the day at Simon Pearce and the Montshire Museum this Friday. I was absolutely certain that my 11 year old would want me to accompany him. I was torn because 1) I did the trip last year with my middle son and while it was fun and informative – it is not really something that I felt like spending my Friday doing; and 2) at some point I really need to get some work and other stuff done and it would be the whole day on Friday. I got the email that permission slips were coming home and dreaded it – I didn’t want to disappoint but I really didn’t have the time or desire to go this week. I lucked out – he didn’t seem to care and I didn’t offer it up – perhaps he had too much Mommy time for a week and was ready to strike out on his own with his friends. In any event, thank goodness for the small things – no guilt and I get to get something accomplished. Hooray!
