I was jotting down some notes on my 'To Do" list last night, I hear footsteps behind but I'm too engrossed to look up. Then I hear footsteps walking away and turned to see my daughter walking away. So, I called and inquired what the matter was and she says " I want you to look at my scores from school. I was talking to you but I guess you are busy so I will come back when you are done" My heart sank, I felt bad. Called her back, looked at the scores and congratulated her. Then, she livened up and asked why I was looking at my write up while talking to her?
This short story may not be related to my post. However, it kind of reminded me that the greatest gift I can give to my LO or DOs is A Listening Ear. You can imagine what it feels like when you have an important information for someone and while you are talking, she feels or looks distracted.
