I am not here to make you happy!!

… so I exclaimed after one child collapsed into tears because she couldn’t fix her sock, another one in tears because there is no milk for the muesli and the other one in tears because the other two are in tears (and if everyone else is…)

after a moment’s stunned silence … one put her sock away and got herself a book to read, one suggested pancakes (that I happened to be cooking) would be good too, and the other accepted the silence as a solution and found a bit of yarn on the floor to play with …

well!
