When Preschool Assignments Go BadMeghan Gesswein
It all started innocently enough. Zachary was very excited that it was finally his turn to take his preschool group mascot, Haley the Hippo, home for the weekend. The instructions were pretty simple- take care of her, have fun with her, and document your adventures. Zach was very clear that we needed to be gentle with her. He obviously took his duties as her caretaker very seriously.
He was sure to bring Haley with us on our outings, when appropriate. We left her in the car when we took a walk through the muddy eucalyptus grove, but she was lucky enough to visit the zoo and she even wore her pretty pink dress when she joined us for dinner at a friend’s house. It was all going well until I had a margarita (or two) and Zach made the unwise decision to leave Haley unattended while he played Wii with his brother and friends.
At that point, Haley’s adventures took a turn for the inappropriate. And because I can’t, in good conscience, document all of this in her preschool diary, I thought I’d share her shenanigans here. You can check it out below.
Then tell me, have you ever taken control of your kid’s school assignment…for your own entertainment?
