Lily could not accept change easily.
She tried to avoid it and she did come up with a plan to do so.
However, it did not work as she had planned.
Lily was four years old and felt very fortunate when she accompanied one of her sister in class for a whole day.
Lily sat quietly at her desk and made some drawings while the teacher would speak to the fourth graders. Lily was overjoyed.
« You are an intelligent and quiet little girl. You will be a very good student later on. »
Every day she would be watching enviously her sisters getting ready for school. She always wanted to accompany them, promising to listen quietly…No luck; the answer was always the same:
«No! You’re too young. Your turn will come soon enough. »
