I’m Sad Today

One of my four year old students came into the room today and told me, “I’m sad today.”

“Why are you sad?” I asked him. But he was already distracted by the new activities we had put out in our preschool room.

I caught his eye again because I wanted to know. “Why are you sad today?”

“Because I wanted a piece of gum, and Mommy gave me a piece of gum, and then I didn’t want it anymore.”

“Oh,” I said understandably as he ran off to go play.

Busy at work!

I love my job. Especially on days like today.
