There's been a sports day at school, night time homework, sick kids, sick family members, late nights working and huge work pressure for both the parents. Hence I think some of the kids in the household have felt a bit less than happy with the amount of attention they got. They show it in different ways, but hec, they show it.
As one grows up there are moments when words mean so much especially when lovingly delivered by a parent. We find that one on one (or then two parents on one) makes a huge difference if only for a few minutes .And sometimes, teachers provide a daily inspiration that I found out last night, not only us parents see, but the kids also notice. So I want to share with you the note on the music teacher's door (I pass every morning when I drop off Mr L and the other two see when they go to music class).
