Mom's presence in school - Different view points
Me : What ??? But why should I come, when the school bus drops you right at our doorstep ?
Daughter : No ..still...you should come and pick me up one of the days.
On my assurance that I will pick her up on the day I come to the school to give the books to the class teacher, she is delighted !
Me to Son : Sooraj, I will be coming to your school today to drop the cheque at the Front office.
Sooraj : Yeah, okay. But please, you don't have to come to my class.
Me (never loosing a chance to pull his legs) : " Oho...appadiya. Raasa, will definitely come searching for your class. Will call you out and hug you in front of everyone and much to your embarassment will ask you all the friends names and ask you to introduce me to them. How is it ?!! "
Sooraj with an exasperated grin and a whine : "Ammmmmmmmmmmma......"
Me : Okay, I assure you that I will not drop in to your class unless there is a pressing need to ask you something. Deal ?!
For one, the mom's presence is a matter of delight and for the other, an embarassment. My son is definitely growing up.
