easy child 2/difficult child has a band concert tomorrow night. I've known about it. She is all sorts of excited. Wants us to go. She has not had a single passing assignment in band except for showing up. She won't bring the instrument home to practice. EVER. Last year, she didn't even want to go to the sppring concert because she "hated band so much". Two days later, she signed up again. But this year hasn't been any different...she doesn't practice, doesn't know any of the songs or scales, etc. I don't want to go to her concert. I try to treat her as I do my own kids. If she were my kid, I wouldn't be wasting my money on renting her instrument. Thus, I wouldn't be going to her concert. Is that just plain cold? I just looked. She has 13 graded scales or songs and 6 are either f's or she didn't do them at all.
