“Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.” – William Shakespeare
Thursday, October 9th
I like being early. Even if it’s five minutes before the rush, I enjoy having that moment to move into a transition rather than landing smack dab in the middle of one.
This time I landed in the middle of a Grade One curriculum night. My daughter’s teacher had prepared extensively to share what the children are learning in class and how we as parents can best support them at home. As it happens, I wasn’t the absolute last person to walk through the door so it seems that I was right on time.
I lament not being in the classroom more often. Now that Darling Daughter takes the bus to school almost every morning, I find myself scrubbing my toilet and doing breakfast dishes instead of bringing Daughter’s teacher coffee and reading books to the kids. This makes me look forward to Darling Son starting kindergarten so I can jump back into that circuit of assisting in the classroom.
Are you prompt?
