Both mother and son survived the separation caused by the first day of school!
Four-years-old "Cameron" Norvell, of Eastern North Carolina, was returned to his mother yesterday at approximately 1430. The two eagerly smiled at one another while racing into open arms. Larie Norvell, the “victim’s” mother, immediately asked him, “Do you want to go back again or stay home with mommy?” Mr. Norvell replied that he would like to go back to get his blanket from the cubby.
During a later evening research, Mrs. Norvell discovered a notebook labeled, “Communication Log.” Upon opening it, she read that "Cameron" had had a VERY good day up until naptime at which point, what was described as “Missing Mommy Tears,” began to flow. Larie states, “I am a bit concerned that I was not called. I know how adamant my son can be when his feelings are hurting. "Cameron" told me that he was told by one of his teachers that she would take care of him. Maybe that’s the best way to handle it rather than calling the ‘fickle’ mother who was looking forward to school-days for her son but began to express some uncertainty when the time actually came.”
"Cameron's" mother has assured that there will be no charges filed for the compensation of lost comfort that can Only be provided by a mother, concerning "Cameron" Norvells’ tears. She has also stated that she will use the next four days, before her son has to return back to the installation on Monday, to better prepare herself as well as "Cameron" in lieu of shortening the apron strings.
