Musical Chairs


When I picked up Scooter from school today, she had stickers all over her face.

The kid loves stickers.

Her teacher said, "Scooter, tell Mommy what you did today."

"Hmmm...uh...."

"Tell your Mommy why you got all these stickers."

"I got stickers and Bonus Bucks and uhm...."

Obviously, the teacher was gonna have to tell me herself.

Seems the kids were playing musical chairs today, and after the music stopped, two little girls were fighting over a chair. Scooter, who was already ensconced in a chair, got up to give her chair to one of the other little girls. The teachers explained to Scoot that if she gave up her chair, she'd be out of the game.

"Tha's okay. I don't want Destiny to be sad."

That's my pumpkin. Just when I'm convinced her mission in life is to drive me up a wall, she brings me back to my knees.

Awwww! What a great story for me to read while my little one is sitting in her bed calling to me all the things she thinks she needs in order to go to sleep. Thanks for the perspective.
