I had just dropped my kids (my class-kids) off in music and walked into the workroom today when I heard Ally's teacher hollering (I know, it's hick-ish, but it's the best word!) at me from down the hall.
"Jennifer! Jennifer! Are you in here? Come here-you have to see this!"
I can't decide if it's an excited or a panicked holler, so I move pretty quickly to get to her room.
Then I see the beaming smile on her face. Whew!
She had helped the kids make a dandelion painting (is that the flower that you blow the little white whispies off and make a wish?) and was asking them all what their wish would be if they had a real dandelion.
I looked on the board and found Ally's name with her wish written out.
"I wish to be a princess."
Not bad, I think. Not original, but not bad. :)
Then I look directly below it and see her classmates wish.
**Now I have to give a little back story here.
One day, out of the blue, Ally and her classmate "J" became, well....attached. I don't even know how to describe this. I have to keep reminding myself that we're talking about 4 yr. olds here.
I know I've talked about the little guy before to some of you. He's the boy that is usually holding hands with Ally in line. Once I saw him walking beside her with his hand just barely on her back, like he was making sure she stayed close.
He's the boy (4 yr. old boy) that when Ally was attempting her first go at the "big slide", ran to the bottom and yelled, "I'll catch you, honey!"
I have heard (through Ally) that he wants her to come watch him play soccer. How sweet!
And he's the one that, every day, walks past the other 5 or 6 classmates, stepping over other's toes and wiggly legs, to go alllll the way down to the very last seat in the row for morning assembly, to the spot right next to Ally, where she is always waiting, with such a sweet little grin. And he smiles back and sits right down, usually not even saying anything at all.
I know! I know it sounds ridiculous-but it is the strangest thing! It is the sweetest relationship I have ever seen between two children. And they only see each other twice a week!
Anyway, back to my reason for posting. Quick recap. Ally wishes to be a princess...yadda yadda....
And little "J" wishes...
"to be Ally's prince."
I could cry!
