Bonding at the school spelling bee

Yesterday was the annual spelling bee at my kids' school. I always find it a bit stressful listening to the kids as they are spelling the words...especially when they have to do that pause to think about which letter comes next. Sometimes those few seconds seem to go on for ages.

It's a great solidarity building exercise for parents though. I stood at the back with a few other mums so we could all be anxious together about our own and eachother's kids. Now I'll probably feel slightly more comfortable saying hello to them when I see them around the school. For an introvert like me, that has to be a good thing.
