So, this happened a few weeks back.
The little one was almost ready to step out when she quickly handed the school dairy for my signature.... That was an apology letter for disturbing the class 😳quite shocking !!!
Maybe I gave her that look and before I could speak she told me..."Just sign it ma...It's a teamwork" ..I was like 🤐 Teamwork????
I didnt wanna delay her any further, thought of discussing later in the day.
Same day , while I was cleaning elderone's cupboard ...found an apology letter for coming late to class 🙃..My day just got better! I stopped the house cleaning..until my head got cleared 🤣
So the evening discussion started.. My elder one - "Oh!! you didn't clean the other can find 4/5 of those.Teacher forgot to take it from me.It happens" That pride in her eyes... indulgence!!
I must admit I just lost it there. #teenagermom
I figured out that day from the discussion..

1.Apology letters aren't meant to apologise/repent but written to be taken by the teacher if she wants one.

2. when children graduate from middle school to high school , mom also should act with teenager hues .... be the devil's advocate!

3. we can write ✍️ without emotions.
Thats why this post!! i just emotions!
