What age is ds? Why does school start at 12.15?

YABU to be 'raging' when you have no idea what's happened to make them late.

Presume if DS is only part time school he is under compulsory school age, so a one off day off is hardly the end of the world. He'll probably have learned as much in a morning of one to one time with his Dad, watching a mechanic, as he would in an afternoon at school anyway.

Why would dh delibelately have your son miss nursery? School? Id be more worried than annoyed TBH

Something's obviously happened that has prevented them getting back as they planned. Your husband wouldn't deliberately do something to prevent your son getting to school. Calm down.

its not compulsory, calm down.

his dads as entitled to spend a bit of time with his son as you are

If battery is low then phone either died or he turned it off to save power, perhaps he took him on way back home.

Wheresmycaffeinedrip Mon 15-Apr-13 12:40:55

Why don't you trust him to either have taken him or have a good reason that be didn't and isn't back get?

YANBU - he's caused you son to miss the time he's meant to be in school!

So where are they?

livinginwonderland Mon 15-Apr-13 12:44:19

wow, calm down. i would be more worried than angry!

manicinsomniac Mon 15-Apr-13 12:46:15

I'd be more panicky that angry tbh ...

YoniLovesChachi Mon 15-Apr-13 12:46:46

"he's caused you son to miss the time he's meant to be in school!"

How do you know that, LilyAmaryllis?

Wheresmycaffeinedrip Mon 15-Apr-13 12:48:45

Why don't you phone the garage or the s hook find out if they r still there or whether your dh called the school to let them know?

I have called garage and the car is still being looked at and dh/ds are still there.

GoneGirl Mon 15-Apr-13 12:53:19

Any news OP? Hope they are ok.

YoniLovesChachi Mon 15-Apr-13 12:53:26

OK, so now you can relax safe in the knowledge that they're fine.

I think that I would be bored stiff if I had waited for a car to be mended for hours with a small child and to have a hysterical partner would not help! It doesn't sound like he's being deliberately tricky just that this has taken a long time. Hope they're back soon. I'd have a cuppa and enjoy the peace and quiet if I were you!

SESthebrave Mon 15-Apr-13 12:55:38

Agreed, relax now - they are fine. I'm sure your DH is probably frustrated too as this wouldn't have been his plan for the day either!

WorraLiberty Mon 15-Apr-13 12:56:51

I don't really understand this.

Your first thought was to think up a NN, change to that NN and start a thread no Mumsnet.

Your second thought was to ring the garage grin

Glad they're safe though.

YANBU I would be annoyed but he can't help it. Maybe not a good idea to take him on a school day next time?

OutragedFromLeeds Mon 15-Apr-13 12:58:05

Missing an afternoon of nursery really isn't a big deal. Just think of it as DH homeschooling him for a day.

Wheresmycaffeinedrip Mon 15-Apr-13 12:59:46

Right, so now call school let them know your ds won't be in and enjoy the peace. No way would hours in a garage be anything less than frustrating and stress full given that there's more wrong than first thought or it wouldn't be taking so long.

Least they r both safe.
