The children have forced me to buy an alarm clock that will help them wake up early and reach school on time. However, the only person who wakes up is their Mom. So much so the alarm has been permanently switched off.
Well, here is a book that expresses my emotions truly, only difference being the boy in question offers excuses compared to my kids who do not care to respond.
On Monday Neel decided
He’d be in time for school
On Tuesday he decided
He’d obey every rule...
Neel, has every intention of doing all the assigned tasks on time, however somehow, by some twist of fate or design, things go wrong.
This Dr Seuss style book combines a slice of life happening into a rhyme and converts the entire book into a very enjoyable read.
Sometimes he comes to school with just shoes as he has given his socks to the elephant or he gets mesmerised by something and forgets his errands and his homework has the strange quality of hopping away.
But there is always a tomorrow or a next week when things will be definitely better.
