Today was chilly, kids in the cafeteria are coughing, and sneezing. One little boy sneezed in line and when I told him to sneeze into his arm and cover his mouth when he coughed he said..."Dont worry, I have medicine" So what do ya think about that!
I was passing though the cafeteria into the kitchen when a little guy came up to me, he had gotten his hood up and fastened so all I saw was his eyes, noes and the top of his mouth. His jacket zipper was broken and zipped all "wonky" (that's my mother's word)
"Can you fix my zipper so I can go to recess?"
"Honey, your zipper is broken do you need it zipped?"
"Yes, it's cold outside" (We live in California and it was a chilly 60 today)
I was in a rush so I said, "Why dont you go ask the noon aide to help you"
'But I want you"
Melt, Melt, Melt went my heart. I tried again but the zipper was a no go. I thought if he went to the nurse she would give him a new jacket from the clothes closet.
"Go to the nurse? I'm not sick"
"Ok lovebug I will try one more time" Victory!!! The zipper went up and he was off.
"Good, recess is almost over"
