This morning in preschool story time, we started talking about the upcoming holiday, Independence Day. Before we got very far into our discussion, one of my favorites (yes, I have favorites, get over it) blurted out, "Horrible holiday!" and slumped down, arms crossed.
His mother tried to calm him, but I had to inquire. "So, why is it a horrible holiday, L.? Is it too noisy of a holiday?"
"Oh, I love the noise of the fireworks!" he exclaimed. "But, the library is CLOSED!"
(See why I have favorites?!)
