Today was the day we celebrated Halloween in kindergarten, which was quite convenient, as it really IS Halloween! (My head is pounding and to be honest I'm not sure I lived through it.)
I wore an adorable and uncomfortable “hot dog” costume that belonged to the son of another kindergarten teacher, and my paraprofessional wore a hamburger costume that was worn by her son last year.
We went together like mustard and ketchup; we were two peas in a pod. Frankly, I think we were incredibly clever. But guess what? We were not nearly as clever as Francis.
“HEY! Mrs. Smythe!” she yelled excitedly across the room, “ You know what? If YOU get hungry, you can eat Mrs. Jones. And if Mrs. Jones gets hungry then SHE can eat YOU! And since you guys are friends, it would be okay!”
Try keeping a straight face after that revelation.
(Let the candy gorging begin.)
