My 4 year-old is going to be the death of me.

Took the day off today to send Adam to school and do a little bit of luggage packing.
We had a minor scare yesterday. Adam's teacher called me to inform that they saw 2 ulcers in his mouth and we were told to fetch him home.
Good Lord, not on the eve of the eve of our holiday, surely?!
I brought him to the doctor's, and because he wasn't running a fever and there were no rashes on his body or limbs, we were given the clear to return to school today.
Here he is at the back of my car. He's very happy when I told him "no need to take school bus today, Mummy will send you" :)

Waiting around for temperature-taking and daily checks by the teachers.

Queuing in line for assembly at 8:30AM.

He's next class neighbours with my niece Noelle.

Well, it's not the ulcer-scare that's making me on the verge of crying.
I received disturbing news from Adam's form teacher this morning. She gave feedback that there are times when Adam misbehaves and is disruptive to the class, for example, there were occasions where he played by himself and laughed loudly during lessons and did not comply with Teacher's instructions.
His teacher was worried that I would get angry and assured me that so far he has not been to a Naughty Corner yet.
I reassured her that it was perfectly Ok for him to be punished or disciplined if he misbehaves again, and told her to go ahead and be more firm with him.
At swimming lessons, I too, observe him sometimes not paying attention to what Desmond is telling the kids to do and I have to repeatedly march over and give him a stern warning.
I told Andy about these incidents and Hubby's response? "If there's such a thing as a Naughty Chair or Naughty corner, then Adam must have slept in the Naughty Cot since Day 1 of life".
Good gosh. If he's like this as a 4 year-old, I don't know how to deal with him when he's a teenager.
I swear, this child is going to be the death of me.
