As long as I can remember teaching kindergarten in the public schools, kindergarten usually had the pleasure of eating lunch first. It felt more like brunch considering we usually had to eat at 10:30 AM and the breakfast crowd had cleared out less than two hours earlier.
I walked bow legged down to the Principal's office to ask if I could go home to change my pants. It was embarrassing to say the least because I remember them being linen and just clinging to my skin. He sat there laughing for a minute and then declared that in all his years, he had encountered plenty of children that needed to go home to change wet pants. He went on to say that I was definitely the first teacher that had made such a request. I felt so special..............NOT!
This school picture was actually taken later in the day. Needless to say, I was wearing another pair of pants!
