In one of the preschool classes, they were talking about careers… what they wanted to be when they grew up. So, Tuesday they dressed up as their dream career. We had a baseball player, marine biologist, a doctor. Then there was the stay-at-home mom. She brought her “daughter” in, named Rosie because of her rosie cheeks, car seat and all. She was playing with her doll, and I decided she need a little talk:
Me: “Now… don’t just get married to anyone. Make sure you find a good man.”
Future Mama: “I knooow. I already found one.”
Me: “O really?! Who?”
Future Mama: “[Bobby].”
Me: ” O of course. Alright. He’s a good one.”
Some people just know what they want.
Now, I have my little buddy. He came up to me the other day and said: “Miss Elli…. I luv you.” Flattered, I said thank you. His teacher then went on to tell me how earlier he had told her quite the opposite: “Miss teacher… I don’t love you.” HA! talk about brutal honesty. Well, I will take the undying love while lasts. These kids move on quickly. Pretty soon I will be the unloved one.
