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.
I love my job. Especially on days like today.
