Lunch Date

Yesterday, on picking Clara up at school, I discovered that her class is planning to host a Mother's Day luncheon on Friday at 11 AM.  Thank- FREAKING- God my classes ended today, and  WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY THINKING??

Yes, in principle it is a lovely idea.  But what about the kids whose working mothers cannot come at that time, and especially with such short notice?  Hard for the children whose Moms are not there; massive guilt-bomb for the Moms who cannot come.

As I ticked off "yes" on the sheet cheerfully headed "You're Invited!  Please say you can come!" I noticed that one mother had already scrawled next to her daughter's name "I'm so SO sorry.  I can't make it."  I'm so SO relieved that for once it wasn't me.
