Candy !

Me and M are not morning people. I  believe there is something called as morning people and evening people. I can be awake till about 11.20-12pm and M is usually awake till about 10-10.30pm.

So, school in the morning at 7.45 is a struggle. We are dragging our feet reaching school.

One particular day, M just did move and I was running and trying to make it to school on time. She started walking at snail pace.

And I got mad at her and yelled, that she does not understand what hurry up means and that TV and other important things will go away if she does not react. She did not budge.

On the way back after dropping her to school, I was miserable. What kind of morning start am I providing ? Yelling at her. How is her day going to be  ? Gosh…

So, I packed a “sugar candy” and a post-it note saying “Mommy loves M” into a ziplock bag to drop at lunch hour, at her after care school. I got smiles from her care taker there when I delivered this ziplock bag.  I told them we had a fight at morning and I feel terrible about it.

Evening:

I go to pick her and M is all smiles. M says “Mommy, next time, pack the roll-up”

That was heartwarming to hear !
