Hello! I just got home from my fifth day of kindergarten, and I am whiny because I am so hot! Mama brought Sugar Dot to come pick me up, which was exciting. Something I keep forgetting to say is the first day of school my teacher read The Kissing Hand and ever since then, Mama has used a no-no marker (sharpie) and written a red heart on the palm of each of my hands before school.
Mama: How was your day today?
Mama: What did you do?
Claire: Color, do stations, listened to Is Your Mama a Llama? Hey, that's some fancy writing! Days of the week, months of the year. There are seven days in a week. PE. We played scooters so a person sat down on the square part of the scooter and the other person pulled them like a wagon, only no sides to keep you safe.
Mama: Did you fall off your scooter?
Claire: No because we hung onto the side. She still holded my hand when I stood up on it so people could say never never stand on it. I had lunch. We walked the alphabet. She had letters and a picture and we sounded out the letters and said what animal it was. That's about it.
Mama: Who were your friends today?
Claire: Leahanna, not Lola because she had been absent.
Mama: How was lunch?
Mama: Tell me about Mrs. Alvarez's scooter.
Claire: It has the tortoise and the hare on it. Not the video, a button.
Mama: What do you think that means?
Claire: I don't know. Do you?
Mama: Maybe it means to go fast or slow. Tell your readers why she's using a scooter.
Claire: Because she has a hurt leg. She went on a trip and she hurt her foot.
Mama: What do you like about Mrs. Alvarez?
Claire: She lets us play snap cubes and Legos. She has a Promethian board to show us stuff.
Mama: What's that?
Claire: It's like an easel, I guess. It shows us stuff. Like the Tortoise and the Hare. It's a video about if it's fiction or non-fiction.
Mama: Okay, joke time.
Claire: Mama, if your Mama is a llama, he might turn into Super Why. That's all. Now can we watch Super Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? Don't write that!
