My darling Janie couldn’t WAIT to talk to me this morning. She ran into the room shouting my name. (Which is basically what ALL the 25 kids do each morning! It’s music to my ears. Mushally. )
“Mrs. Smythe, this morning my sister choked on a xylophone!
"This morning my sister choked on a xylophone!" (Now typically I speak kindergartenese, but today I was STUMPED and required MORE."
"Tell me exactly what happened, step by step!"
“I SAID that my sister chocked on a xylophone this morning! You know, those little white things that come in boxes that people pack STUFF in? XYLOPHONES!”
Me: “Oh, yeah. I ALWAYS pack stuff in xylophones! And I’m constantly tempted to put one in my mouth.”
(I have a great COVER GIRL giveaway tomorrow. Stay tuned.)
