She said she was bored so I tossed something to keep her busy. And entertained. The little one joined in the fun.
The first day of school is in three days and Pristine is so looking forward to it like Christmas. Like the past three summers (excluding this one), we ‘just stayed at home’ while the rest of the children in the UAE are back in their home countries chasing grasshoppers. Or enjoying the rain. Or running their bare feet on the grass.
There are no grasshoppers or natural grass in Dubai and the last time my child experienced rain was ages ago. Naturally, she is lonely and Bored with a capital B in it.
I want to write about the dull 10 weeks I’ve let my daughter endure (a.k.a. “how I failed as a mother” or “how I surely suck at homeschooling”) but that would be another day. For now, I am glad school is starting again. Just glad.
Are the students in your house looking forward to school again?
