Journal - Sean's Folly




Sean has been misbehaving and he committed a major error last Thursday. . However, he made this card for me on friday and I am glad to receive it. I have had talks with Sean and he has been grounded and he has been punished but I thought this little card that he made for me was really nice as no one taught him to do it...

However, he recounted a conversation with Pakcik - our driver. Sean claims that Pakcik told him that if he were ever to make a mistake - Sean should apologise. Hence - he made this card for me. Of course my heart melted no matter how wrong he was when he had tears in his eyes and apologised to me... Well - to me - one of the joys of motherhood would be when your child does the right thing... This is definitely a moment to treasure.

Aww Firstly Sean is soo sweet and thoughtful. Secondly he genuinely didn't want to hurt you. He is still young and learning. In time he will learn thru all his future mistakes. Its part and parcel of life. Hugs to you babe! All Mummies will understand your true feelings. Sigh .....my time will come very soon!! Hehehe!!

Chowchow...nobody says motherhood is ever easy...but it has its rewards no matter what goes along the way. Even Sean's misbehaving and then his attempt to set things right between you and him...I call that the beauty of motherhood. That is a blessing in disguise, babe!

*big hugs*

And I really do admire Sean's move to do that card for you...very much admire it, babe!

P.S. I like his handwriting...so cute! Love those 'y's and 'g's! hee! hee!
