Re: Devastated at my poor supervision of my kids
No mama with more than one child can expect (or be expected) to provide the one-to-one supervision that a mama with one child can. And even mamas with one child mess up and take their eyes off their kids sometimes.
Yes, something horrible could have happened but it *didn't*.
Buy the mama that jumped in some flowers or a new outfit, thank her profusely, sign the kids up for swimming lessons like you plan to, and try to forgive yourself.
