Last week we had a kindergarten girl who snuck a pair of tights in and sneakily changed into them, leaving her pants and socks stuffed behind the toilet. Everyone was in various stages of puzzled/amused/mortified (her mom), but honestly – no one noticed before she got on the bus.
(Please read the following in my Crabby Old Lady voice.) Pants these days. They’re just so tight! Leggings are the norm and while they are perfectly fine under dresses or long shirts, so many girls wear them with just regular shirts now.
The very next day we were outside playing and I pointed out three little girls to the other teacher. “See those leggings they’re wearing? They look just like Veronica did.*”.
Later, when we went inside, the youngest girl sat criss-cross in front of me and I realized….. Se was wearing tights under her t-shirt. *sigh* she had dressed herself and Daddy brought her. I don’t blame him one bit.
“C’mon, sweetie, let’s go find you some pants.”
* Veronica is not her name, but it is a great song.
