So what if I tried to get the pre-k kiddos to say "Snuffleupagus" and "hippopotamus" during story time for my own amusement? They totally got their revenge by convincing me to sing "I'm a Little Teapot" and "If You're Happy and You Know It". Guess what? My voice is just as off-key as it was the last time more than two people heard me sing solo... easily 12 to 15 years ago. But there I was singing and clapping and stomping and jumping with a room full of four and five year olds and one entertained aunty. It felt pretty good.
Also, please note that the girl in the center of this photo is holding a pretend cell phone. She pulled it out in the middle of my story. In the cutest voice I could muster, I leaned down and said, "how rude!" Gotta curb those texting habits early or at least teach them to be more discreet.
