Today is “Letter Q day” at my son’s preschool. For each letter day, he is supposed to bring in an item which starts with that letter, and he decided he would take a quarter…probably like the rest of the class will.
Lately, he’s been putting his underwear on backward, so this morning when he was getting dressed for school, I asked him to come closer so I could see if he had put them on correctly.
When he was a few feet away and facing me, I said, “Okay. I can tell you have them on the right way.”
He asked, “How do you know? The tag’s in the back.”
I said, “Well, there’s that little…uh…pocket in the front, so I can tell they’re not on backward.”
He looked down and replied, “Oh! I can put my quarter in there!”
