"Who forces time is pushed back by time;
who yields to time finds time on his side."
My team teacher was humming the verse to the song “Cat’s In The Cradle and The Silver Spoon”. She was about to drive me bonkers.
“That song is just stuck in my head!” She giggled as she left the room with some dirty dishes.
“No kidding” I said.
Just then I heard arguing outside the preschool room door and Zach and his dad walked in. It wasn’t Zack’s day to come but it wasn’t unusual that his dad brought him on off days.
“But Dad, you said we could go do some gardening today.” Zack said.
“Zack, you know dad has a presentation tomorrow, right buddy? Next time.”
Ohhh, the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon,
Little boy blue and the man on the moon,
When you comin’ home son I don’t know when
We’ll get together then, dad, ya know we’ll have a good time then…
Zack’s dad stopped at door and turned around.
“Come here, buddy…let’s go do some gardening!”
Zack jumped from the coloring table and left with his dad.
“Hey! That was a first,” said my team teacher, “I wonder what happened?”
