Once upon a time me and my family went on a trip. They said it would be fun and that we will have a new home now. I was so excited at the time, but then they said me and my brother would need to stay and we had to go.
“Why?” I asked they said this was a school for children and that they will come back later. I ask “How much later,” they did not answer. Mommy said I will make a lot of friends here and that we will have a great time.
I couldn’t grasp why they couldn’t stay, but I guess this is what boarding school is like. All the other grown up parent were saying good bye too. So this must be normal that’s what I thought, but the way there looked into me and my brothers eyes made me wonder.
My brother felt it as well he said, ” Why do you look so sad momma.” She didn’t answer daddy said ” Because we love our little babies” with a smile.
For one last time we held hands and walked in the school garden.
