Cute kid

It has been SO LONG since I have written. And I don’t have that much time to write. So let me tell you a cute kid story.

I’m walking my kiddos back from lunch recess through the outside shortcut and one of the cooks’ cars is back there. Someone very clever has written, “Blow me!” on the back of the car in the dust. I see it and cringe as one of my struggling readers stops and peers at the window.

“Buh..buh-low…blow me!” he reads, triumphantly. D’oh.

“Um…maybe let’s not read the car, guys,” I start to say.

Little guy looks at me, looks at the car, puffs up his tiny cheeks and blows as hard as he can.

I just laughed. Adorable child, please never change.

    Welcome back! I have missed your wonderful posts. I read this story before I knew who had written it and thought, “Oh, this sounds like Em, could it be ???” And it was. : )
