I want to apologize for today. I know that you were not happy to go to camp this morning. Something about my “stealing your last day of freedom” was how Poppyseed put it…
With Daddy only home a few times each month, the nanny giving notice, my work, AND that it is moving towards the end of the month of Elul, you guys had to go somewhere. I know you were disappointed though for the life of me, I can’t figure out what you thought you were going to do at home all day.
Having two working parents means that we rely on a support system of family, friends, and others to help care for you. Sometimes it also means that your plans (or desired plans) must be altered in order to accommodate our hectic life. Daddy and I know how disappointing this can be and we appreciate how hard (two of) you try to go with the flow.
Tomorrow is the start of the new academic year. The expectations rise with every passing year. We are really excited for all of the new skills and information that await you. As for your freedom, won’t you be looking forward to Shabbat now!?!
P.S. I’m also sorry that you ended up having “the best day ever” (Poppyseed) and “really a great day” (Beernut). Because it really weakens your argument in the future.
