i was in one of my kindergarten classrooms today listening quietly to the children take turns sharing their writing workshop papers. i watched one boy turn, look at me, and then make the oddest expression. he scrunched up half of his face and closed one eye while he smiled.
did he have a tick? was he trying not to be sick?
then he did it again, pointing at me at the end.
and that's when i realized, it was a wink.
