I'm sorry to carry on about this, but this is such a huge source of frustration in my world. Mostly because its senseless. easy child 2 (aka difficult child 3) is here. She is supposed to be here this weekend, but wants to trade weekends so she can go camping with us next weekend. She asked me, I told her to ask dad, he told her to ask mom. So she called her mom. An hour later, her mom is messaging me. She doesn't think easy child 2 should go with us because she's been sick so much and that's why she had all that makeup work in math. I asked husband. He didn't know she'd been so sick. We pulled up the school website. She was gone from school on Dec 9. She left school after math class on February 4. That's her only absences. easy child 2 told her that's why she had 6 missing assignments in math between Jan 5 and Feb 11. Her mom might accidentally let her go, but again, we've caught her in a flippin' lie. What do we do? Tell her no, she can't go because of her mom's concerns about her being so "ill" and missing so much school? I hate this. It is absolutely no win.
