Watching Brady process life is a gift and at times very funny. Today, we ran into the grocery store after his picking him up from his school’s camp. While there, we ran into his teacher. In a very rare moment of shyness, Brady hid his head behind my leg when he saw her. She chatted with him and with me about school this morning. All the while, Brady kept hiding behind my leg or just starring at her. When we got in the car, we had the following conversation.
Brady: Mom, why was Ms. ___ at the grocery store?
Me: To buy groceries to bring home to her house. Did you know Ms. ___ is a mommy too?
Brady: No, Ms. ___ is not a mommy. She is a teacher.
Me: She is a mommy. Did you see that girl standing next to her, that was her daughter?
Brady: Hmmmm….No…Ms. ___ is not a mommy or a daddy. She only buys groceries for us at school and then she goes back to school. That is where she belongs! Why did they let her out of school?
I am still laughing about this!
What little thing made you laugh or smile today?
Being married to a teacher, I sometimes wonder why they let them out too!
