The following is loosely based on a true story:
So I need to apologize. The other day when I babysat your child, we had an incident. See, he went into his room to do his homework, while I looked around for something to make for dinner. Planning on making grilled cheese, I couldn’t remember if your child liked fresh basil on top, so I had to ask him. That’s when it happened.
Now I admit, I wasn’t thinking and my brain was on autopilot. I turned around and when I couldn’t immediately find him, I instinctively called out, “Here boy!” and pursed my lips to make two short kissy noises. I may have even tapped my palm on my leg.
Now I admit it wasn’t my finest hour. But your child did answer immediately. And didn’t seem fazed by my approach. So we went on as if nothing happened.
I promise to be more aware of my surroundings for next time.
Happy LAFF! I hope this post made you smile if you are stressed as we are today. Have a great weekend!
