My wife's due date is set for Saturday, but I'm missing it to be at the Roo.
Are you kidding me? I missed Radiohead the last time they were at Bonnaroo because I was giving birth, but if my husband had decided to go without me I probably would have killed him. Scratch that...there's no probably. Definately.
I'm missing meeting the girl of my dreams....I've surmised this to be the case, in that I have never met her....she mus be where I am not....;)
In all seriousness, I understand why you feel you shouldn't miss the graduation....but in a way you are not. Find a quiet place and call him at the appropriate time; let him know you are thinking of him and will see him soon....then pick up a cool gift at roo for him for his graduation.
Of course, you can always throw him a little party before you go....a pre-celebration...;)
Guys have been doing this for as long as we've had a civilization...;)

I missed out on senior prom so i could afford to go to bonnaroo. this year finals week at my school is the same week as bonnaroo, but luckily i made it so that my last class i have to show up for is wednesday night... but i can't wait for that stress! studying for/writing final exam papers, moving all of my stuff out of where i'm currently living into storage, packing for bonnaroo and dealing with that excitement all in the same week.
but i have no regrets about not going to prom and dealing with all that stress will be COMPLETELY worth it once i step foot on that farm. no doubt ;D
PLEASE help ease my mommy guilt and tell me what you are missing to be at Roo! I'm missing my oldest son's kindergarten graduation. I know it sounds silly, but my heart aches over this.
Aww, I'm sorry. I was almost in the same situation, but luckily our school doesn't have a big graduation ceremony for K, just something held in their individual classrooms. I emailed my daughter's teacher, asking what day it was planned for & letting her know we would be out of town those days. She was super nice & said she would schedule around us.
Geez, way to make the rest of feel like jerks. "After I donate my kidney to a friend in need, I'll still make the effort to go Bonnaroo and see all my friends even though I'm not crazy about the lineup this year."
Bonnaroo 11-16 ~ Coachella 15, 17 ~ Newport Folk Festival 14-16 ~ Shaky Knees 14-16 ~ DesertTrip 16 ~ Moogfest/MOEMS 13-14 ~ Music Midtown 12-13 ~ CounterPoint 14 ~
It's not even a huge ceremony, I just really hate that I'm missing it. He has done SO well in school and I'm so proud of him. I constantly wonder how such a smart and awesome kid came from me, and I want to be there to celebrate with him. I know this probably sounds dumb, but I had him when I was only 19, so I feel like I'm always trying to fight the "you're too young to be a good mom" BS.. and missing my baby's last day of school for bonnaroo seems like something someone could easily judge me for. (people who don't understand roo, that is.)
Aaaanyway, I'll get over it and I'm sure he couldn't care less if I'm there or not. I guess we'll just have an awesome "date" before I leave Thanks guys. This thread did make me feel better.
I will be missing a test in one class and giving a speech in another. I've already called my uncle, who is a doctor, he is sending me doctors notes that say I was very ill and couldn't make it. Gotta love family. He understands Bonnaroo is important and that I can't miss it.
