The following is an actual conversation between Tom and I this evening as I was brushing his teeth.
Tom: "Mom? Do I have an capris?"
Me: "No. Where did you learn about capris?"
Tom: "Ms. Whitt said it in class today."
Me: "Why was Ms. Whitt talking about capris?"
Tom: "She said the Special Helper today was wearing capris."
Me: "Capris are for girls. Capris are longer than shorts but shorter than pants."
Tom: "Well I figured if I wore capris tomorrow I would be the Special Helper."
And that my friends is how the genius brain works.
Tomorrow: We tackle Tom's irrational fear of painting smocks. He got through 2 years of preschool without painting. Tomorrow and Friday are painting days in Kindergarten. Good luck Ms. Whitt!
