The other day we were going over the calendar during morning meeting. We were putting up important dates…or at least dates that are important in the eyes of seven year olds – birthdays, days off, half days and Halloween. You know, the good stuff.
Of course, everyone had to tell me when their brother or sister’s birthdays were as well. Seriously, like I care. But I put on my best teacher face (even though, for some reason, this behavior really bugs) and smiled.
Then I thought, what the hell? And I mentioned that MY sister’s birthday was on Halloween.
Eyes wide, one friend asked:
“Is it on Halloween every year?”
Perhaps we DO need to spend more time on the calendar.
