Chess club went well today, Miss Panousis tells me at school pickup. Kingsley is most certainly getting to grips with his moves and thinking two steps ahead. And loves attending. So why would you ruin a year 2’s artwork while in the classroom, Miss P asks Kingsley. He inexplicably crushed then stomped on a piece of art another student left on her desk; the same desk Kingsley sat at during chess club today.
He didn’t answer his teacher. He has no reason to ruin other’s things. And for this infringement he was sent to Mr. Townsend’s office (much to my dismay).
And for disrespecting others’ belongings I was not going to buy Kingsley a treat after jiu-jitsu. No icecream and no Smiggles starionary. He cried, he thumped his fist and stomped his feet…but I remained unwavering.
Fast forward to tonight as I lay with him in bed reading his (super easy) reader ‘I Want Icecream’ our son turns to me and declares that he loves mm e to the moon and back. I LOVE YOU MUM he beams at me. Then, now don’t forget to put 5 drops in my ear!
