My six year’s old classroom teacher allows parents to bring in a birthday snack for those children who have summer birthdays. I hadn’t set my birthday snack date and spoke to Bobby’s teacher the morning of Field Day. I was going to ask her for a date and she asked if I had planned on bringing it that afternoon. I hadn’t planned on it, but I could run to the grocery and get back to the school soon, so I asked her what she’d like me to pick up. The classroom has new carpet so she didn’t want anything with icing, so she suggested cookies. I asked my son which kind he’d like me to pick up and he said that he’d like me to pick up sugar cookies.
I left the school and headed straight to the grocery to pick up the sugar cookies and some cool napkins. I grabbed the cookies from the front table, as seen in the picture above and then grabbed the napkins. I was making such good time and got back to my car and right to the school. Once I got to the school, I parked my car in the front drive and looked in my bag and saw that I had bought peanut butter cookies and not sugar cookies:( You know the policy on bringing peanuts into the classroom…just too many allergies, so I had to run back to the store one more time before I could deliver these cookies to his class before their morning break.
I would’ve kept the peanut butter cookies but I knew that I would be the one to eat them, so I returned them for the sugar cookies that I should have bought in the first place. The colors were very similar, so it was an easy mistake, but it wouldn’t have happened if I would have been paying more attention. When is the last time that you made a stupid mistake that could have been avoided if you would have just paid closer attention to what you were doing?
