These pictures apparently were posted with a Chinese news story about the first day of school. I’m well aware that the friend who sent them to me this morning was mocking me a little due to the fact that I confided in him that I parked our minivan outside my son’s kindergarten play yard during recess some days so that I could watch him and make sure he was okay.
Yes, these pictures made me laugh. And, yes, hiding in bushes to spy on your child is a bit over the top. But, you know what? Every child likes knowing there’s someone pining for them in one way or another while they are at school. And, if he had recess in 10th grade, you may just find me parked by the school somedays once again.
Mock me if you will. I’m a good mom.
