kindergarten

Today was “observation day” in my son’s kindergarten class so I got to spend an hour this morning sitting in a tiny chair watching my little boy in his classroom.  After the hour was over and I kissed him goodbye while he ate the apple from his snack bag, one overwhelming thought hit me – I want to go back to kindergarten.

I want to spend my days in a little room where the walls are covered with amazing artwork.

I want to spend my days in a place where they force you to go outside twice a day.

I want to spend my days in a place where there is an actual allotted time for “read to self” where you sit on the carpet for the express purpose of reading quietly, for fun.

I want to spend my days in a place where one designated learning activity involves playing with a tub filled with warm water and soap bubbles.

I want to spend my days in a place where even when you get the answer wrong, you get a smile and a kind word just for trying.

I want to spend my days in a place where you get a hug when you cry.

Do you suppose if I asked nicely they’d let me register?  I wouldn’t even complain about the tiny chairs and the really low sink in the washroom.

Please?  Pretty please?
