Lions and Tigers and Teeth, Oh My!

This morning was the kindergarten "Winter Sharing Celebration". PC to a fare-thee-well, right? I say, let's call it Festivus Hanukwanzmas and be done with it.

But I digress. Up on the bulletin board in the classroom was each child's response to discussion of gifts that would "make people we love feel happy".


Most of them were on the order of "a chapter book for my sister" or "a robot for my mother".

My lion and tiger and leopard obsessed child? Would like to give a sharp toothed animal to her cousin.

I love that Miranda. She's a girl after my own heart.

My Violet wants to give Daddy a horsey and a Superman costume for Christmas, but I think a sharp toothed animal would be a much better choice!

In a pretty package too! Anyone can give a book, but a sharp-toothed animal? That is thoughtful.

Not a warm, soft and furry animal, oh no. A sharp-toothed animal.

I gotta meet Lyla.

Yea for Miranda!

Pinky said...

I showed that to Lila, who looked genuinely touched. She seems to think the sharp-toothed animal would be for her protection.

This one goes in the *save* pile! Can I give a sharp-toothed animal to my motherinlaw for hanukah?
