If there is one thing that we know we can always count on with Kaitlyn, it is that she has a firm grasp of when things are scheduled to take place.
So when she put her lunchbox away this morning and informed us that she had a pizza party, and would not need her lunch, Amber and I believed her. She is, after all, great at keeping up with things (in case you have missed it in past posts, she has most of the next 12 months planned).
When my phone rang at about 8:15 this morning, with a number I knew was most likely the school, I was a little worried. Kaitlyn wasn’t sick, so we were good there. Was she hurt? Thankfully not. She was on the other end of the phone. In tears. Today was not the pizza party for her math class (Amber’s “divide up the pizza joke” became ill-timed). She had no lunch. Not good.
My first thought was to have her buy her lunch at the cafeteria, but that became less appealing to me the more I thought about it. Then, I figured I would take her something around her lunch time, but didn’t want to get hung up and not be able to make it. So, I did the next best thing. I left work, went home, got her lunch, and dropped it off. I included a “special” treat for her, plus a note that I hope will brighten her day.
Today was definitely a day that was uncharacteristic of Kaitlyn. For her to miss so bad on the timing of the pizza party is not like her at all. But, crisis averted, and everything will be just fine.
