I overheard a conversation between one of my dismissal charges and a kindergarten teacher after school today. He, being a very observant little dude, initiated a bit of a chat when he realized that she had treats.
“Can I have one?” he asked meekly.
“I don’t know,” she replied. “How was your day today?”
I smiled privately. During lunch I’d heard his teacher bemoan the fact that he was in rare form and had been having a spectacularly un-stellar day.
“I’ve been bad today,” he sheepishly answered, much to my surprise.
The pair struck a bargain wherein if he has a happy face on his agenda tomorrow, she will reserve a treat especially for him.
I’ll be tucking away this little moment so I can pull it out on one of those days.
