Boy (5 yrs) has on a puffy coat. He looks at Mom. He pulls in his arms with the zipper still intact. Turns the coat around. His zipper is now on his back and still together. His hoodie is at the bottom of his chin. He tucks his arms in again and rearranges his coat around and around. Again and again. Not frustrated, just entertaining himself.
Six kids all under 8 years old are seated around the dining table and are talking about how their Dads napped on the weekend.
"Who has a Dad that likes to nap?" I ask. All eight hands go up in the air.
"Who has a Dad that like to watch football?" asks a 5 yr-old. All hands go up in the air.
"Who has a Dad that watches football while he naps?" All hands shoot straight up accompanied by barrels of laughter.
"I don't get it. Why is it called 'kindergarten' when it is not a garden?"
