The boy with the red hair

The boy with the red hair was badly behaved this morning.
It was in his cookery class.
He goes there while I give the music session to the first group of three.
And then it is his turn, with the girl who leaks music and the boy who has to have the bon matin.
I will tell you about them next time.
At the end of the first session, the director came to the meeting room and told me what had happened. The boy with the red hair wanted to do music so badly that he had thrown things all around the kitchen. He was being punished by missing his music lesson, so I would not see him.

I felt a fierce surge of proud joy that he enjoys our music sessions so much, which I tried to hide...

This was followed by sadness.

He was going to have to wait another week to hear the jingle bell rap...

Ohhh, the Ginger Kids!! I'm so sad that he missed the music lesson he loves so much. Maybe you can give him a few extra minutes the next time.

Poor kid. It's a hard, frustrating life sometimes.

Oh dear! Hard to be punished by having the thing taken away that you were longing for so much it made you be bad!

Hope he's ok next week.

I feel that was too harsh. I would not have any other solution, however. It does seem sad to think he had to miss his music.
