After a rousing session of jumping on the bed with the Miss, Rockstar got upset the previous night when he couldn’t fall asleep. He also fails to sleep in the following morning. At times like this Rockstar would rather get up and get some of his regular math practice done than toss and turn futilely trying to get back to sleep, so that is what he does. He then finishes early, and gets to escort the Miss to Chinese (she is completely not off for Chinese tuition, as it turns out – so we’re having both kids work especially hard on their Chinese, this holiday period. The only tuition Rockstar ever takes is Chinese anyways, because we can’t adequately support it at home on our own…)
Are they cute or what?
Yes, The Miss was positively delighted by her escort to class yesterday morning………. until she realized we were leaving her there as usual <jaw drops in horror>
So I think that was the loudest she ever cried on morning drop off (“Morning drop off” btw is a one hour starter-drop off and parents and helpers often stay close and quietly peek in to monitor how they’re doing on their own for the first time…)
Rockstar’s expression as he hurriedly scoots out of sight on my instruction…….. is a mixture of sheepishness (oops I made her cry) and delight (she’s crying because she wants to hang with me!)
We have very local breakfast in the very local food court nearby……..
And I leave Rockstar to my laptop while I duck quickly into the nearby bathroom… Only to emerge not 2 minutes later and find my laptop abandoned. Seeing other helpers and parents walk up to pick the Miss’ classmates, he’s rushed to follow suit and collect her. Couldn’t even wait for me. Humph.
And his expression is like that because he can’t wait for her to finish her snack so she can play
(She of course deliberately takes her time. And tries to feed everyone else and a few birds.)
But All’s Well That Ends Well.
Or, This Is Why Our Elder Child Appears To Always Be In A Helmet Near The Younger One
(No she’s not throwing it intentionally at his head, she’s trying to play “catch.” Unfortunately “catch” often looks like she is intentionally trying to bean someone.)
That last pic was taken shortly before Rockstar crashed and went home to zzz. Finally.
