Embarrassed!

Children can say or do something very embarrassing at times. I’m sure all of you have a story like that. Here’s mine.

PicsArt_1391613570227For some time it was very difficult to get my son to go to school. He would just refuse to go and any amount of coaxing, bribing or threatening would not change his mind. I checked with his teacher and she told me that he was perfectly fine once he entered the classroom and during the day he would interact well with her and the other children. Apparently all that drama was just for me.

One morning I had somehow gotten him in the car, but he was in a very bad mood. He was muttering and spluttering the whole time he was in the car. When we reached the school I was very surprised that he got down without any resistance and marched off towards the building. Little did I know what his motivation was.

As you enter the school building there is a small area where the parents drop off their children. The Principal and the teachers or their assistants are waiting at the end of this area to take the children with them to the class. Now the Principal is a very strict no-nonsense sort of lady who I suspect all the staff and probably some of the parents (including me) are a bit scared of. But apparently not my son.

He spotted the Principal and announced, “I’m going to put you in jail and lock you up”. I think that was the punishment he wanted to give her for opening the school and inadvertently making him come there. The principal just laughed and replied to him “Who’s going to run the nursery then?” I was hovering behind my son and glad that he didn’t reply “Exactly!” to this. All I could manage to say was “Oh he’s being a policeman today.” I suspect I was extremely red in the face when I said this.

The next day to make up for this incident I made my son give the Principal a flower. However, he refused to apologize since he didn’t think he had done anything wrong. The Principal was very kind and said that it wasn’t needed.

Soon after my son realized that he would have to go to school whether he liked it or not and stopped making a fuss in the morning.

  1. This was hilarious! I love the part about muttering and spluttering. I would love to tell my boss the same thing every morning when I get into work. Good for him! I’m sharing this on my Facebook, Twitter and re-blogging it on my site.
