Memorable Moments in Early Childhood Education

"Laughter is an instant vacation." 
~Milton Berle

Young children experiment with language. I suppose we as adults are not that much different in awkward situations. I happened to be taking documentation of two preschoolers (a boy and girl) in the Dramatic Play Area talking on two toy telephones together. It's moments like these that make the field of early childhood education so memorable. Enjoy....

“Hi Honey.”
“My name isn’t, Honey.”
“Oh.”
“What’s your name, Sugar?”
“Not Sugar, either…wrong!”
“Sorry....can I have your number?”
“My number?”
“Uh…yeah-huh, your number of your phone number.”
“Sure.”
(Long Pause)
“Well............. what is it?”
“If I don’t answer you, it’s me okay?”
“Oh, thanks Honey, Bye!”
"Bye."

Me too, Julie.
I have learned we make a choice how to feel in all many situations. I like to look for humor, so I find it-
The little girl being called "honey" was irritated with her friend but she was determined to keep the peace. She did.
I'm glad I can share it with everyone.
Thanks, JUJU.
