Dear Kindergarten Mom,
I really don't know how to gently lead into this one... so, just smile.
Today, there was a commotion in the cafeteria, and one of my teacher assistants went to check out what was going on and to settle our darlings down...when your son turned and looked at her with what looked like dried blood coming out of his nose. Before you panic, I want you to think, "what did I put in his lunch today?"
Yep, your precious boy shoved some raisins up his nostrils...both sides...about three each. He was encouraged him to
blow them the hell out get them out and finally, after blowing hard, the intruders were dislodged. No harm, no foul. Your son and I spoke about the dangers of shoving things up noses and why this is not a smart thing to do.
I probably shouldn't add this, but it made us giggle all day...when the teacher assistant came back to get the raisins in a napkin to throw away, they were gone. Yep, you are probably guessing right on that one too.
This is just one of the reasons why I love kindergarten. You may want to reinforce the no sticking things up noses conversation. Please remember to laugh because it will all pass too quickly and he will be grown.
But this will be a great story to revive at his wedding.
Have a great evening!
