rafael showed me this gold hair band when i came home from work last friday.
"it's for you. i got it from the treasure box in class," he said.
rafael had this reward system in school that if the kids behave well, do something kind or are able to read a book by themselves etc, they can get stamps or straws accumulated until they score enough to take a treasure of their choice from the treasure chest. and this is actually the first treasure he is entitled since he's been school for four weeks.
i was really touched.
"i knew you like sparkly things so i got you this," he said.
"hmm... is there anything for boys in the treasure chest?" i still couldn't believe that he actually chose something for me for his first treasure.
"yes there were."
oh my dear darling.
excuse me for showing off with this treasure of him/mine. this is too important for me to forget.
