It was a typical Thursday afternoon. I picked Alice up from preschool and asked about her day. While my questions are usually greeted with such responses as, “I don’t know,” “I don’t remember,” and “We played,” I got an actual story from The Kidling on this day.
The Mama: How was your day?
Alice: Sage threw up.* Someone else threw up first, and then it was Sage’s turn. And guess what?! Caden stepped in the puke!
The Mama: He did?
Alice: Yeah. Just for fun. Caden stepped in the puke just for fun.
Please note that Caden’s mom is a lovely human being who would not think it was fun that he stepped in puke. Particularly not if said stepping was purposeful. Also, how did my kid learn the word puke? Seriously!?
* The Kidling’s friends’ names are changed. Just because I think the whole world needs to know what my kid is up to doesn’t mean I think the same is true of her buddies. Obviously.
