This afternoon, one of my children was staying back in school waiting to attend her ballet class. I told her earlier that I would not be able to accompany her later as I have to attend a meeting in the school. She took her snack and I have changed her. She waited in an area with other children for her class that would start in another 15 minutes.
I came to her, “Darling, I have to attend the meeting now…”. Before I could continue, “Teacher, you don’t have to worry about me, I can take care of myself,” she said confidently. “You sure?”, I asked again. “Yes, I can take care of myself.” she said and turned her back to the toys.
I looked at her proudly. A four years old managed to comfort me with her understanding attitude. Of course, there was an on-duty teacher to look after the children in that area. She was playing with toys happily when I was walking away from the area rushing to the meeting.
She is an angel!
