For what feels like the 50th time today, I got a letter addressed solely to me from one of the boys’ activities. This one was from the music classes they both went to last term. It really annoys me. Every single one of their activities (swimming, playgroup, music etc etc) was set up by E. He did the research, called them up, filled out the forms, and took them along. Occasionally I go along if I happen to be on holidays at the time. So who do they send the letter to? Me! In the case of one of the activities, I have literally never been there, or spoken to anyone involved.
It’s laziness, and if I complained, I’m sure they would think I was being petty, but it’s not petty at all. It should be possible for a man to be the primary carer without having to fight for the status with every single service provider.
