difficult child wants to attend a major equine show the second weekend in April. I explained to her that I really want to go as well, but in order to go, she must attend school everyday, and be on time, or we will be staying home. Some of her friends will be going to it, so she really wants to go. So, I am really going to have to stick to my guns and follow through with this if she does not make it to school. It is 9 days. UGH, I hope she can do it, because if she doesn't, it is going to be one ugly house to live in when we stay home that weekend. Fingers crossed.
