MORE Birthday blues ...

Maaaan ... after last week's session at the Dojo, I thought for sure that Daughter #1 was going to finally get promoted to her yellow belt. I mean, come on ... we've been waiting FIVE MONTHS for this promotion, and the only reason that she didn't get promoted last month was that we weren't able to get in during the promotion period! So, anyway, I go through this big song-and-dance of getting her out of school early today (her birthday) to be able to get her up to Dojo for the 4pm class ... and ... NO PROMOTION. So ... instead of "happy happy" "new belt on birthday" it was "big hassle for big disappointment". Needless to say, this made me feel like a major sack of shit. Since she's in play rehearsals most days (and we've been tied up on the weekends) it's been VERY hard to get her to her regular classes, but I guess I'll have to try to schedule her for the late class on Wednesday, and then on Monday next week ... which will give her two more shots at it. This really really really sucks.
