Slice of Life: Day 6
When the teacher asks if you have a minute and follows you into the classroom you know it’s going to go one of two ways…
“Hey, do you have a minute?”
That sinking feeling… Oh God, what did he do? Please let it be good.
“Of course. What’s up?”
“Oh nothing bad, but I have to share!”
Oh, phew… breathe. It’s a good thing!
“The other day the kids were on the carpet and they started chanting, Mrs. W is the best teacher! Mrs. W is the best!
I looked over and Luke was sitting cross legged, hands in his lap, lips pressed together not saying anything and he just had this look.”
As his mom I know the look… The I’m innocent, I didn’t do anything, honest look.
“I asked him, “What’s up, buddy?” and he replied, “Well, I love my mommy and she’s the best, so I think she is the best teacher too. I’m sorry Mrs. W.”‘
Aww, melt my heart!
She said it was the sweetest moment and replied, “It’s ok, Luke. I think so too.”
It’s moments like these that make me grateful for a wonderful teacher like Mrs. W to share this with me and make my heart smile!
Mrs. W is the best teacher! Mrs. W is the best… and so is mommy!
