That's not something you normally swing through the air. (Well, not in my world.)

The children came back from their special this morning, skipping and singing down the hallway.  I noticed that Ariana was swinging something that appeared to be a hankie around her head with incredible enthusiasm.


As they got closer to me she smiled and yelled above the roar, “Can I put my underwear in my backpack?”




Speechless, I nodded a quick, “Yes, yes, yes!”  and turned to Ms. Perky.





“Exactly what does Mrs. Periwinkle DO in music?” she said with a laugh.




“I’m invoking the don’t ask, don’t tell rule.  It’s much more appropriate in kindergarten than the armed forces, don’t you think?”



And I turned and skipped into the classroom with the rest of the class. (There are some stories that are worth waiting for.)

Last year early in the fall during morning recess you know the time of day the morning chill is still in the air. My student who was wearing a dress sailed down the slide with a great big smile on her face and then ran over to me and whispered "I think my mommy forgot to put my panties on me" We went inside and I let her check out the situation in the bathroom bringing her extra clothes into the bathroom just in case! =)
