It was Festive Sweater day at school today! Our director had been to a meeting where it was a suggestion for encouraging holiday cheer among staff, and I was all over it because, as you remember, I have a sweather! (Well, Lloyd’s sweather, if you’ll click the link.)
I donned a Santa hat, put some batteries in the switches, and proceeded to have thirty preschoolers tell me, “Your sweater has lights on it!” over and over and over. I had one string of lights set to ‘steady’, the other to ‘flashing’.
We have little twin three-year-olds in the other preschool room, and they had arrived late so they didn’t see me in the early morning. They come to my room for nap, and when I woke one of them up to take him to the bathroom, he stared at my flashing torso and was spellbound. I looked up at my friend Kate and whispered, “I just blew his mind.”
Later I was passing one of the kindergarteners and she gaped and said, “How are you doing that?”
Yessir. This sweater is magic! Happy Saturday!
