They came back from pre-school today with stickers.
They like stickers.
Ellie had 1 on her nose & another on her mouth. They very quickly blew away in the strong winds, but she didn’t seem to mind. I found out later that she’d taken 1 from her best friend Rachel* who, unfortunately, wasn’t available for comment.
Jake’s was more conventionally placed, on his jumper.
It said “Mrs Smiley* says I’m a Star”.
When I got the chance I asked him about it, along the lines of: “You must have been really good at school today! Is that right?”
“So what did you do that was so good?”
He paused for thought, although – worryingly – not for that long
“I didn’t hit anyone!”
Well, I suppose that is good…
I’m pretty sure he was joking: he had that big, mischievous smile on his face, & when I ask him what he did at school I almost always get “Not anything!”.
However I may need to have a word with this Mrs Smiley*…
