During calendar today, Riley, our calendar helper, accidentally drew a rather large line on my shirt with a black marker. It wasn’t on purpose and I just kind of shrugged it off. This wasn’t a particularly favorite shirt of mine and damaged clothes are par for the course in kindergarten.
Later in the day, during centers, as I stood up from the table Kristen was sitting at, she remarked, “Oh Mr. ______, I really hope that mark comes out of your shirt… it’s my favorite shirt of yours.”
Really? I didn’t know she had a favorite shirt of mine… I didn’t know she even noticed the mark. Kristen gives lots of hugs and perhaps during one of her hugs she noticed it? My waistline is just about at her eye level I suppose.
“I’m sure it will come out in the washing machine,” I replied.
“Well just put a little laundry detergent right on it before you put it in,” she advised.
And there you have it. Home economics advice from a five-year-old.
