FIRST DAY IN DAY CARE

He came home,
his mouth outlined
with a chocolaty crust,
His pants torn at the knee.

But he happily sang the ABC’s
a cappella
And clapped hooray so
As if to say
See, I made good use of today.

He pointed to the folded note
His teacher had pinned
on his bright red tee.
“To Parent: Please read me.”

FYI:
1. A little girl (Hanna)
Bit him because (allegedly)
He snatched her snack,
and would not give it back.
2. A little boy (Matthew) pushed
him to the ground;
His pants will need mending.
You may notice a small bump on his head;
but do not worry; we iced it.

3. Please remind your son of the rules
he must abide.
4. He sang an encore of his favorite song,
danced and tapped his feet to the beat. But it was time to nap. What a feat to get him to sleep.

Thanks Ms. Sally 

I laughed and I cried
and I sighed,
As grandma’s do sometimes
It was almost déjà vu
His dad did the same.
