It was the last day of preschool today, but don’t worry! I am not going to regale you with some melancholy post about the passage of time, boo hoo, my kids aren’t at preschool anymore, boo hoo, I have to figure out some good summer activities, etc. Instead, I’m going to regale you with some odd and entertaining events in my day today.
1) I asked the boys to draw pictures of their teachers to attach to our year-end gift. After completing his portraits, Jake, whose artistic skills are, shall we say, not entirely developed yet, looked at said portraits, and announced that they really looked more like a lion and an octopus, rather than our beloved teachers. Truly, this was the case. 2) I walked by a large patch of lily-of-the-valley in bloom, and the scent reminded me of my grandma. I used to give her lily-of-the-valley talcum powder for her birthday. I wondered, if I’m ever lucky enough to be a grandma, will my grandchildren give me lily-of-the-valley talcum powder? Or will I be more of a lavender grandma? Will they even still manufacture talcum powder then? Or will it go the way of the housedress and lisle stockings? 3) As I was walking the dog, I was ogled by a City of Calgary Waste Management employee. Hoo boy! Is there anything more uplifting to the spirit than being catcalled by the garbage man?
