Tuesday, 17 June 2014: One Year and Seventy Eight Days Old.
Oh my goodness I FORGOT Ayla today!
Although I’d been caught up late at work I still had to ring our designer to confirm a few things.
So, I made the call on my mobile on the way home and completely forgot to turn off toward Ayla’s day care.
It wasn’t until after the call had wrapped up and I was only a minute or so from home that I realised!
I think part of the reason I forgot was because in the back of my mind I knew Hubby was home earlier than usual, even though we’d discussed Ayla’s pick up just an hour earlier.
Anyway, I raced through the back streets and pulled up at day care, feeling guilty and a little but ashamed.
I felt guilty because I know most parents probably forget their kid at some point but I didn’t think it would happen to me so soon!
And I was ashamed because I let work take over my brain to the point I forgot to pick up my darling Baby Ayla.
It could have been worse I guess, I arrived before 5pm and Ayla was really none the wiser… If anything she was happier than usual to see me!
