Each d.a.y

as the van approaches , it brings in a new tale and every afternoon while I wait for Adi to get back from school, I can expect a new saga in the form of complaints, praise, anger, fights etc. It comes in a surprise package. As the van stops al that you need to do is, look at the expression on the girls faces (girls I specify as they have a tendency to complain) and you know what’s coming. If it’s a smile, peace assured. If it’s a frown, your journey to hell begins as they won’t stop until we have parted ways. As the rats shove each other out of the van, with it comes a shrill in the form of complaint aimed at the respective mom whose son or daughter got into trouble. In Chorus “AUNTY he licked the window of the van, dirty boy, we are not going to be his friend”. “Aunty, he punched me, as I punched him, but he did it first”. “Aunty he pulled my hair and so I kicked him on his bum!!” Sometimes, it can be a gang against one which is when the victim gets helpless. The situation gets out of control as you watch a little rabbit crying for help as he or she gets out of the van! You can only pray it’s not your son’s or daughter’s turn that day.

It's time to deploy another van for kids or get a bigger one. But somebody has to take the first step :)

I can imagine the world of kids with all their antics having gone through thick and thin as a school teacher and as a mother of 2 boys now grown up.
