Sometimes even “supermom” messes up
Oh word and did I mess up.
No I don’t think I’m supermom. Not by a longshot
Jason has been looking forward to his very first tennis tour for a long time now. They have been practising VERY hard (as in from 8 am to 5 pm every day) He was packed and ready (Well as ready as he can be to be without me for over a week)
The night before he was due to leave, his coach sent me an sms and asked me to bring his proof of entry when I drop him off.
Uhm…. WHAT!? I was supposed to enter him!? Oh was I ever upset with myself. The thought never occurred to me that I had to do it. I thought the club would. Okay, in my defence I was VERY sick when we had planned all of this and it just slipped by.
Still, this meant he was going to go on a tour with two tournaments and he wasn’t entered in either of the two!!!
He was heartbroken to say the least. I was very impressed with how the coach handled the situation though. Still. I messed up. Badly.
I e-mailed the tournament organizers and asked
begged them if he could still enter, even though entries closed weeks before. Both said they could put him in a cancellation list but that he can’t enter anymore. URGH!!!
Minutes later the first tournament organizer phoned. “I love your e-mail address” he said (supermom2boys) I thanked him and said that I don’t feel much like a supermom AT ALL. He laughed and said I should not worry, Jason will get to play. He had a cancellation. YES!
This morning I found out that he got in for the Pretoria part of the tournament to.
Wow. Prayers were answered, that’s for sure.
He is doing very well so far. I love how independent he is. He is having a great time.
