I’m posting this for two reasons. First, I’m trying to use my cell phone camera more often to capture things I see…unfortunately, it is a difficult thing for me to remember. Two, since I’m a teacher, these are things I pay attention to. This little girl and her mom got on the green line that I was riding and the mom did not say one word to her daughter the entire trip. This wouldn’t have been so bad except for the fact that the mother had headphones on the whole time and this girl had a hang dog expression for the entire train ride. She picked at the grates near the window, played unjoyfully with her umbrella, and stared in to space. To be honest, it is inspiring to me because I’m learning how not to treat my children.
