Every parent has moments when they are proud of their children. It might be an ‘A’ on a test they worked really hard for or holding the door open for someone without being told.
This was not one of those times.
T.Puzzle decided he didn’t feel like listening to his teachers all day long (what a shocker!). They told him since he couldn’t listen he was going to have to sit by the wall for afternoon recess and not be able to play. They told me that he looked at them and announced that it didn’t matter because his Mom was picking him up early. He wasn’t even going to be here for recess.
What’s the opposite of pride? How I felt right then.
Guess who lost all their privileges and had to sit out recess the next morning?
