Dressed up with no place to go

Charlotte was invited to a birthday party a few weeks ago. We were very excited that we were going to be able to go this year as last year the post office kept us from being able to go to this person's party. This year the party was Cinderella themed. Charlotte spent lots of time planning her attire. She was perfectly coiffed and had her present ready. The day of the party I tried to double check the time but couldn't see the evite as it came to my work email address and I never could find it from home. But I had the event on my personal calendar so I wasn't too concerned.

We arrived right on time, only to realize the party was ending, not beginning! I had written the time down wrong. The party was 2-4 and I had it on my calendar for 4-6. Charlotte got to stay long enough to have a piece of cake and give the birthday girl her gift. Then it was time to go. I felt like the worst mother of the year.

From the party we went to run a few errands. Charlotte recieved many compliments on her costume and hair. To make it up to her we made a stop by Krispy Kreme before heading home. All in all, it turned out OK as Charlotte and I got to spend two hours just us, no siblings.

Maybe next year she will actually make it to the party on time.
