I'm upset over a silly thing

DS's preschool are having one summer fun day, from 10-2 during summer break. We were told about it a week ago and advised to book with payment ASAP as it was a first come first serve thing. We cant afford to pay for it til this 28th (so just a few days from now) when DH gets paid. We've really not had any money.

Today I just dropped him off and I asked how it was filling up, saying I would book him in right away on the 28th and she said its already full

I am really upset over this even though I know its a little thing, its only one day. But DS would just expire of happiness to do it and it is the only thing he can really do the whole summer without me as he is attached to his teacher and I couldnt leave him with anyone else. Also he so wants to belong with the other children & he says things like they dont hold his hands etc and I just didnt want there to be a day where they all went and he didnt. Add to that it would of course have been lovely for me too to have a day off in the summer break. I am really gutted about this. Mainly because I know they are little and it isnt as if they will talk about it or whatever but the children play together and he doesnt. So I just really wanted him there and included on that day. And its all my fault for not having a stupid £15 spare last week.

sadangry-maybe they will have some cancellations between now and then?? Explain about how much your ds would have loved (and benefited) from going,and that had money not been so tight then he would have had his name down for definite and ask to be put on their waiting list. Even if they dont have one they may find a spare place 'magically' appears! Fingers crossed for you. grin

Poor you. Is there a cancellation list? Ask if you can go down on it.

Yes she said there was a cancellation list so I will be on it. I just very much doubt there will be any cancellations... I just dont see why a parent would cancel it because everyone wants to have things to do in the summer break. But for me this was the thing to do in the summer break!

Well fingers crossed you manage to get a cancellation.
