Magnificent moments in mothering part 576

In a rush to get to work a few weeks ago I forgot to send my youngest child to a school excursion in the rain with a few minor details: a) a raincoat b) sensible shoes c) a water bottle d) a back pack she could carry e) an umbrella I may as well have sent her in the nude. Beautiful goddess teacher dressed her in garbage bag couture so my girl stayed dry and shared some of her water with my child. Thank God for teachers and their ability to do what is best for the child, I worship them all. And there was no email to the silly mother saying, ‘you are a goose, what were you thinking?’ Today on World Teachers’ Day (UN approved) I’d like to thank my children’s teachers for everything they have done to enable my kids to be functioning members of society. They work hard for little pay and inspire our kidlets in so many ways. Teachers I love youse all. I am so lucky to be a part of a caring school community.

    Nice post. Here’s to good and caring teachers – may they shine on all our kidlets.

    Oh dear… Lol. I’ve done the same with forgetting to provide jumpers in the middle of winter. Our day carers almost feel like part of the family. Bless them 🙂

      They should be blessed. This week it was the swimming permission note for my youngest. I’ve got 3 kids at 3 different schools this year and the notes are driving me crazy.
