I'm not sure what made me think about this today, but it was a memory that made me laugh. It's the small things that are great reminders of why I love my job. I wrote about the incident once, but it's worth repeating since I'm still giggling about it years later.

When I was pregnant- and really pregnant-one of my little ones came up and gave me a huge hug- a big, tight squeeze and didn't let go.
"Oh no," I said, "gentle hugs please".
"BUT I WANT TO SEE THE BABY NOW!" she bellowed, in full kindergarten frustration.
Her over zealous hug was no mistake- she was intentionally trying to pop me.
Job hazards of kindergarten.
