School: Hi madam, your daughter is still at school, is it normal?
Me: Yes, she is supposed to stay till 6.30pm.
School: Well, the teacher didn't tell me that she would stay after school finishes. And your daughter didn't get to have snack since I didn't have anything from you. And, all she does is crying.
Me: Ok, I'm coming.
I met up with hubby and hurried to the school. Aelig was the last kid to be picked up. We have subscribed to the yearly after-school nursery class but since the teacher was busy this morning, hubby didn't tell her that it would start today. The snack box was placed beside Aelig's bag but the teacher didn't notice it. The after-school baby sitter advised us to pick up Aelig earlier as going to school 10 hours a day is just too much for a young kid like her. She encouraged us to find someone to bring her home when school finishes at around 5pm.
