I do give a reason to my DD for not going. I have a painful disability. Standing at these games or practices adds to my pain. I cannot sit at the field, I can only sit on a custom chair that I cannot bring to a field. When her coach scheduled 7 days in a row of practices, scrimmages, along with the already scheduled league games, I told her I would take her to every league game, but I will not promise anything else.
I had to skip three days in a row, two practices and a scrimmage. The coach saw on teamsnap she was going to miss three days in a row, he approached me asked if we were going on vacation. He was pretending he was joking but he was not.
