Most of us don’t like changes in our routines, and neither does Ricki. In addition, if the situation is a new one, it can be the source of a lot of stress for her. So I was not surprised when Ricki promptly threw herself in my arms for a hug as she returned home yesterday.
You see, there was a massive demonstration today, near her school. Traffic had been blocked off, and Ricki’s driver had a lot of trouble ferrying everyone home today.
After she calmed down a bit, she told us that there had been a “demonstration”, and that the police had showed up at her school. Then she added in a whisper:”I won’t steal anynmore…”
No wonder she was petrified!
