Posts tagged ‘three year olds’

My favorite age group

I have decided that my absolutely favorite age group to work with is the threes. They are just so creative and energetic and curious. You can get involved in long complex conversations about monsters and clouds and snails and trips to Gramma’s house. (usually, all at once) They can get into all kinds of fun mischief if you turn your head for more than a minute. They are Houdini in training, and the biggest potty mouths and tattle tails. But they are so wonderful!

Once a friend asked me “ho can you possibly like working with three year olds? They don’t listen, get into everything and are like herding cats!”

Exactly! that’s exactly why.


Always check couch for iguanas!

Seriously! If you are donating a couch to a preschool, please check to make sure that your pet iguana isn’t hiding in it. This is theĀ second time we’ve found an iguana in a donation. Granted its probably not the strangest or most illegal thing I’ve found. But to be fair to the poor iguana, Its not fun coming out of your nice warm nest only to be surrounded by three year olds! And it had to have been freezing;at by least by iguana standards. It is now upstairs with the other iguana we found. My sons are thrilled. But we have reached reptile capacity now. So when you send us donations, please check for iguanas!
