A blue Monday, today?
I met Anja, her friend Marie and Marie's Mother on the way to picked up Anette in the kid garden about 16:40. Anja said that she is allowed by Pappa to go to Marie's home and play with her until 19:00. I said instantly: No! You need to come back home at once and practice your viola. You haven't not practiced a single minute the whole weekend. Then, Marie broke into tears and I could see that her mama was not happy with my disapproval. I suggest the other days of the week that they can play together after school except Tuesday(It is viola lesson every Tuesday). However, she said they have other things to do on the other days. I just felt I must be a "tiger Chinese Mother" in the eyes of Marie's mother.
I admit my heart has been saddened since last Friday. I am trying to post some pictures of happy Anja to cheer myself up a bit, but it seems not helping much. I hope this period of low mood will get over soon.
