Like it was yesterday

Last night we had a quarterly parent meeting at preschool.  After all the usual fundraising business was discussed, we began the emotional (for us as parents) topic of kindergarten.  Where our kids would be going, if they were ready, how to get them ready, etc.  Ms. Lily passed out small slips of paper and asked us to each write one memory of our own kindergarten experience, anonymously.  They were so funny and poignant.  How someone purposely fell and scraped their knee to be able to stay with their mom out on yard duty.  How someone passed gassed and the teacher closed the door and blamed a skunk.  Someone remembered a girl who hide behind the door everyday after recess and wet her pants.  As for myself, I can clearly remember Jake and Matt comparing their superhero Underoos.  Not to be left out, I lifted my uniform skirt to show off my Wonder Woman ones.  And I was the one who got caught!

No, I don't think I did. But I remember Chad had a Superman cape to go with his. I was shafted!
