Close But Not in Time

My 9 year old has her music class in school every Thursday. They are learning to play the recorder and we all had to purchase one for their use. They need to bring it to class every Thursday. Well this has only been going on for a couple of weeks. I always try to have everything ready for the next day the night before. Well I got a little off track because they didn't have any homework from the testing. I completely forgot about the recorder and so did my daughter.

Well I went for a walk with a friend after the kids went to school so I didn't notice till I came back. The recorder was sitting on her windowsill. I couldn't believe it. I looked at the clock and thought she had it in the afternoon so I could get it to her on time. Wrong. I raced it down to her only to be told by the secretary that they had music first thing in the morning because of the standardize testing. Ah, I couldn't believe I went all the way there and I was too late. I saw my daughter through her classroom window and I showed her the recorder. She just shook her head and mouthed "We already had it."

When I picked her up I asked her if I got and A for effort and she said, "No." Oh well sometimes I'm unappreciated. I can take it. If I got it there in time I would be a hero, but yesterday I guess I was a zero. That's how I felt anyway.
