A teacher has penned a heartfelt letter to parents to remind them what is REALLY important to their children over the Christmas holidays.
She explains, ‘When your child comes back to school they tell me about the Christmas holidays’
And although they mention their Christmas gifts, their presents are just a tiny part of what makes Christmas special.
The teacher writes, ‘They tell me about the walk in the freezing cold to get a McDonald’s.’
‘They tell me about staying at Grandma’s and then being excited when you came back from work.’
‘They tell me about how you let them snuggle in your bed.’
‘They tell me how you played cards and took them swimming one day and forgot their towel’
She concludes, ‘They mention their gifts, but for them Christmas is you and your love and time and routines and feeling safe. You are their favourite thing!’
