Todd’s Take: I Can Pick One – Christmas Party or Kid’s Band Concert?
I've got a conundrum and I need your help.
Tonight is our annual office Christmas party and it just so happens to coincide with my 14-year-old son's Christmas concert. The party starts at 6:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:00 p.m. There's no way I can make it to both.
What should I choose?
On one hand, this is the one day a year we get treated with food and beverage for the job we have performed all year for the radio station and it's always nice to get to spend time with co-workers as just regular folks. On the flip side, my boy plays "Barry" -- the baritone saxophone -- in the East Valley High School Band. I know there will be other concerts throughout the year but, who knows... Maybe he decides he doesn't want to play any more after his freshman year.
Mind you, it's not like I am typically a sort of "deadbeat dad" that skips out on his child's activities. I've been to countless baseball, football, basketball games and cross country meets so it isn't as though I don't support my son's extra-curricular activities. Then again, it goes by fast as they say and those are times and moments you can never get back.
What would you do and why?
Find out what I ultimately chose tomorrow morning on the Todd & Timmy Show from 6 - 10 a.m.!
