I received a note today from my son’s preschool teacher. There was a smiley face on top, but I still assumed that my little guy had done something naughty. He had not. She said she just wanted to make sure she remembered the story exactly right for me. You can imagine why we love our preschool teacher! This is what the note said:
While holding the brown baby and feeding it a bottle, he said “When I’m big, I’m going to be a Dad. I’ll have one kid, a boy!” I asked who he was going to play with if you don’t give him brothers. He said, “With me! I’m fun and I won’t have to go to work.” Then he said, “We’ll never eat dinner at the table, just in the basement. And he won’t be allowed to eat anything healthy. Just treats and candy. And he can go to bed whenever he gets tired.”
This is a preschool teacher who gets it. She knows we all appreciate a glimpse into our child’s minds and lives when they are at school.
