A boy excitedly grabbed my hand and pulled me toward a clump of weeds saying "you've got to see this!". When we got there, he continued " you have to get down low to see it". That's when I realized I was going to see a slug - those pests that eat my plants and slime my walk way ... but when he asked "isn't he cute??!", I found myself saying "he is!".
And that's what hanging out with kindergarteners will do to you.
Because so many kids like being pushed on the swings, I usually tell them something like "I'll give you a few pushes to get you started" so I can get to everyone. After telling a kindergartner this today, she turned around and responded "but I don't want you to get me started, I want you to get me ended".
