    The childeren were hugging their parents and waving the nanny,s goodbye..
    it was started to get empty...
    and my eye was on this last child...
    i was wondering if they were always late....
    i feared the answer was
    yes...

    It was 5 minuts before 6...
    she took my hand verry carefull..
    and pulled me to the window and said..

    "'Pappa"'

    looked at me...
    i swollowed and hold in my tears....
    yes ........
    sweety he will come in a few minuts...


    5 minuts passed 6
    she pressed her two tiny little hands against the window..
    turned her eyes to me and said...

    "'mamma"'

    yes sweety she will come..
    come i ,ll read you a nice story...

    but she turned her head away...
    and said...

    "'mamma"'


    A quarter past 6...


    I was holding her and rocking her in my arms...
    hushing her and hugging her singing a song...
    she overflowed me with her tears...
    everyone could hear her cry....
    from miles...
    The worst thing was..

    that look in her eye....


    wich will stay...
    when her first boyfriend ...


    will let her wait...


    finaly daddy arrived.....
    he was holding his hands wide open
    with a guilty expression he smiled..

    but she ran straight to a corner...
    and screamed..


    go away!









    youre late.....

    Waiting can be a scary thing for a child, sometimes there are legitimate reasons, but sometimes....strong emotions in this for sure.
