Robbie tends to give me the lowdown on everything going on with his friends at school, his teachers, and the classroom. For instance, he just told me that one of his teachers has a new coffee cup. He went into great detail about how it has some straight lines and some CURVY lines — ‘curvy’ was accompanied by his whole body shaking and contorting and truly conveyed to me just how very curved these lines were.
And it got me thinking. What exactly does he report to his teachers about what goes on at home?
“Daddy keeps his underpants on the floor right next to his socks!”
“Sometimes when its bedtime, Mommy lets us wear regular pants instead of jammies!”
“Our coffee pot is SO BROWN!”
“Mommy got new underpants! They are REALLY pink and tiny!”
Please note that these are merely examples of the kind of thing that a child might tell a teacher. They are not all necessarily reflective of what might be going on at our house. Not all of them.
