Confession of a helicopter parenting failure

Ouchie. My two oldest kids caught the bus a half hour ago. The weather was fine.

And then it came in with serious rain. As they each have at least a five minute walk into their school they'll be drenched.

But from the start of the day I was paing attention to uniforms, lunches and after school activities. If their mum was home today I'm sure they'd be getting told "there's an 80% chance of rain, take an umbrella" but I didn't think to that.

As my mum has often said "a little healthy neglect can be a good thing" but I'm still not too happy that my kids are walking to school in the rain.
