Caroline goes to a kinda hippie preschool. This is great with me because we are sorta yippies, ourselves, and their hippie principles tend to be very in line with the kind of early childhood experiences we want our children to have.
But this also means we get to giggle a little every now and then.
We got the newsletter via email today, and I enjoyed the paragraph about their guidelines for Halloween costumes for the school parade. The kids are not allowed to wear masks, be superheroes, ninjas, or anything else that would give the opportunity to be a "non-peaceful person."
I explained this to Caroline, and she was concerned. "Uh oh. But I am being a bee. What are we going to do?"
I tried to reassure her by saying, "Oh, dressing up like a bee is fine."
She replied, "Hello! Stingers! Not very peaceful!"
