The day Katie got in trouble at school was Tuesday. It was storytime and Katie was feeling very chatty. Her preschool teachers report that after asking Katie to quiet down five times, they removed her from the storytime group. Chatty Katie had to stand by herself in another area of the room.
The day Katie got in trouble at school she didn’t much care for that consequence. Katie stood in the other area of the room and cried loudly. Katie called for her mommy, but her mommy didn’t come because she was at work. Katie’s teacher went over to talk to her. “It’s okay, Katie,” I hope she said. I hope she gave her a hug.
The day Katie got in trouble at school, I tried to talk to her about it at home. We cuddled in my bed and I reminded Katie about story time and listening and doing better next time. Katie started to cry and she is only five and nobody is perfect, so I scooped her in my arms and smelled her curly hair.
The day Katie got in trouble at school was behind us, so I hugged her close.
