    Default Epic fail. Feel like complete poo

    My son was invited to a Birthday party from his school which we completely forgot about. So obviously we did show up. I feel so so horrible. I literally feel like crying. What do I do? I don't want this woman to hate me. I honestly forgot I'm so stressed out with life at the moment. I can't believe I didn't show up. I usually always remember but I don't know what happened. I feel like crap right now. Im thinking I will get a present than show up on Monday morning apologise and I don't know....should I put money in a Bithday card instead? What the heck do I do?
    Literally could not possibly feel worse right now.

    Id call, 8pm isn't that late, even if her child is in bed, you can apologise and organise to drop off a gift.

    It's not a big deal, I'd understand X

    I agree with the PP. Just be honest and tell her the truth. Ring her, apologise for it being a little late but that it was on your mind. I bet she will appreciate it

    These things happen.

    I've had a phone call from a mum apologising about forgetting a party. Actually it was sad because they got the date wrong and turned up at the venue on the Saturday night instead of Friday.

    My DD took a lolly bag to school on the following Monday and her child gave my DD the present they had bought.

    Oh my gosh, don't worry! She won't hate you, she will understand. Give her a call, explain what happened and I'm sure all will be well X
