On the way home from preschool Callie said that “Emma” brought in her dog for sharing (show-and-tell). I questioned her a little more becasue I didn’t think they allowed real pets at school.
“No, not her real dog, just the bones.” Callie explained.
“Yeah, the skeleton.”
“She brought in the skeleton of her dog?” I questioned.
I had to think for awhile. It was “X” week and usually the kids brought in something that started with the letter of the week, so besides it being somewhat disturbing that a child would bring in her dog’s remains, it didn’t follow the rules of sharing!
Then Callie blurted out, “X-ray! It was an X-ray of her dog’s skeleton.”
Ahhh, now I get it.
