Being Ignored Sucks

Brian has been walking the girls to school every morning. I say that he’s walking them, but I caught him letting them go at the corner today. Hmmm…still not sure how I feel about that, but they were with a group of kids and the school is right there.

I left for work shortly after they did and had to drive past the school on my way. I saw the girls cross at the cross walk. And they saw me. And they ignored me! Seriously—Caroline kept looking back at me and smiling, but would turn her head every time I waved.

Not only did they ignore me, they started walking faster. It took all I had not to roll down all my windows and yell, “YOU-HOO!!!” at the top of my lungs.

But I was a good mom. Guess its good practice for the teenage years.

Still sucks, though!

Oh no! :) I think my feelings would have been hurt. you get bonus points for not calling attention to yourself as you drove by. I think I would have been tempted to honk, wave and blow kisses. :)

I would have totally yelled out the window!!! In my opinion, if I had to put up with the tatrums and the attitude, smart mouth, and the so many other frustrating traits of my child, I should totally get the satisfaction of embarrassing them here a there. You would be surprised what kind of therapy that is. I always tell Josh, that I wouldn't be a good parent if I couldn't embarrass him!!
