Here’s my then and now.
To see the answers for everyone else, look below.
I remember 5 things about kindergarten:
1. Riding the bus and one terrifying time I didn’t get off at my stop. A police escort may have been involved.
2. Stapling my finger with my teacher, Miss Mills’ red stapler.
3. Naps (glorious naps!) on army cots and the puddles of drool my classmates and I would leave behind.
4. Drawing a picture of my family of four, when there were only three of us. There was a parent/teacher conference and many discussion about lying and my desire to have a little sister.
5. The time I told the lunch monitors that I was allergic to bananas, they made me eat one anyway and I threw up all of her and myself. It also happened to be Picture Day.
I also remember tasting Elmer’s glue (c’mon, you know you did it too!), the smell of Crayola crayons and the squishy delight of finger paint. I loved kindergarten, but man, did I have a dreadful haircut!
A bunch of blogger friends and I have been reminiscing about kindergarten and put together something fun for our readers!
