Line Leader

At preschool, Ms. P gives each child a 'chore' for the week. This week it is Tater's turn to be line leader. He was extremely upset because he didn't get to be line leader on Monday due to a doctor's appointment. And Wednesday was a big day. He got 2 chances to lead. Once to chapel and once to recess.

Needless to say, he tried to take advantage of being line leader. He tried to get everyone to run from the chapel back to class. Luckily Ms. P is quick and stopped him. She made him go to the back of the line and he was not allowed to be line leader all the way back. What an upset child she had. Hearing her tell me this made me smile.

It gets better. She allowed him to be line leader to recess. She said he walked VERY slowly and held his arms out to the sides so no one could pass him. I don't know what was funnier, picturing him doing this or watching her imitate him.

Gotta love those kids!

Oh, I love that anecdote! Poor Tater -- he definitely learned his lesson. My little guy likes being line leader too. And snack getter . . .surprise surprise.

Such a cute little Tater! I'd like to see Ms. P impersonate him! Imagine being a preschool teacher? I can't.

I would have a classroom of children tied to their chairs. I don't know how she handles 10 3-yr-olds. Imagine the bathroom break. EEEK
