The school called around 4.30pm. I was working. My heart skipped a beat. Each time, when Kz's school or G's nursery calls, it's not a good thing. Never a good thing.
I was prepared, it's either:
2) Something else
Principle: Mrs. Wong, this is Cathy, your son knocked on the cabinet, we already applied "wong yok sui", it was bleeding justnow, but now it looks alright, but I still need to inform you.
Me: Wait, kena where?
Principle: The area between his eye and eye brow.
Me: WHAT ???!!! Kena eyes or NOT?
Principle: No, no, no, no kena eyes. He was running around with a friend, then he knocked on the cabinet.
Me: *paused* What should I say, takkan I scold the school?
Ok, I understand these things bound to happen, hope the teachers can keep an eye on them in future.
Principle: There were two teachers taking care of them, keeping an eye, but everything happened too fast, you know la, kids. So just to inform you ya.
Me: Can whatsapp me his photos now? I want to see how deep is the cut.
Principle: Ok, no problem.
And she whatsapp-ed these photos to me. Maybe it looks ok to you, or it's not that deep/serious, but what happens if he hits the eye?
I believe the teacher asked him to smile and pose for the camera. I could imagine the teacher telling him "Kz, please smile for the camera, your mummy wants to see your face, please look like you are very happy".
Ok, sorry, I'm being suspicious.
I applied some tea tree oil on him that night. The cut looks ok now. I think there will be a scar, coz he scratches and peels the "crusty thingy" a few times, and now it's "wet" again, without that "crusty thingy". But well, not complaining, as long as he remains healthy, happy and safe everyday.
