I should have known

I see now that I should have expected something like this.

I mean, what else would a little boy bring to Show-and-Tell for the letter "C"?

I was expecting the cars, cards, and wooden coyote that the others brought.

But the crickets?

Now I know, next year, I need to expect a parent to walk in in the afternoon carrying an insect case filled with about 20 crickets.

Now I know.



  1. Oh, how cute!

    Something similar happened at our church when the children were asked to bring a friend to church with them the next time. The director's were, of course, expecting other children...but guess who thought to bring animals...☺!

  2. How funny! I can imagine it was quite a surprise! My sister used to be a teacher and she would come home with stories often. I also have a sister who babysits often and she always comes home with stories. Children are such fun!

    oh my!
    I can't really say anything.
    I was once the kid who brought animals to class also. ;o)
