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.)
