Parent Teacher Interviews (Part 2)

We learned two interesting things during our son's PT interview yesterday:
  • The kindergarten kids play a game called (something like) "Counting Bones" in their classroom. The object of the game is to count dog biscuits and place them in bowls. Apparently, over the course of time, some of the dog bones mysteriously went missing. Care to guess who's child was eating the dog biscuits?
  • Our five-year-old son has found the girl he plans to marry. They hold hands in class and give one another rides on the tire swing at recess. The kindergarten teacher says the children are quite inseparable. Our son freely admits to having a "girlfriend" but has run into a small stumbling block. Yesterday he said, "Mommy, I want to marry my girlfriend and I need to buy her a ring.  But I don't have enough allowance yet!"
