Earlier this week while I was at Gunsite, my five year old daughter’s Pre-K teacher asked her about her birthday. Here’s how the conversation went:
Teacher: “RayneAnne, what will your mommy and daddy and you do for your birthday?”
RayneAnne: My daddy is gone away and won’t be here.
Teacher: “Awe, that’s too bad. Where is your daddy?”
RayneAnne: “He went away to kill people.”
Teacher (With a startled and quizzical look.) “Really! Is your daddy a hit man?”
Needless to say, her teacher and I had an interesting conversation when I picked my girls up at school today.
Moral of the story: Be careful what you say around your kids.
