Sweets and Sweet Words

I was in rather a foul mood a few days ago and shouted at the kids, something I hardly ever do anymore. Not long after this got slipped around the door and there was the sound of giggles and a horde of imps running away.

Those are sweets on top of the paper.

These kids know how to get me where I can't resist:

I had to call them all back and give them a hug and kiss and tell them their apology was accepted.
They even salvaged a slightly melty bit of chocolate to put inside the card). I like how she signed it "Salihah and the others" where she ran out of space.

After a horrid, stinky, stressful week, the kids apology really helped me to put things in perspective and think about whats important.


  1. Asalaamu alaikum

    My kids have left me such letters too, slipped under my bedroom door. :)

  2. My younger sis always does that
