“Maggie ate something she wasn’t a-pposed to!”
My preschool teachers brain worked quickly…synapse’s firing at lightening speed.
Let’s see…Maggie: vegetarian, no meat or milk. She is nowhere near either…yes, I can breathe now.
“Everything is fine, children.” I smiled. “What seem to be the problem? Why is everyone so worried?”
Another concerned friend chimed in, “But, look-it what she’s eating! Aaaaagh, no, no!”
I was utterly confused as I sat down and watched them all eating the same snack….was I missing something?
“Ms. Barbra? Should she be eating those animal crackers?” A child leaned over and whispered in my ear.
