SOL: Sleep is Good!

Monday morning arrived like normal. Same routine. Same kids. Same checklist of things to do.
I begin my days working one on one with a kindergartener on letters, sounds, and sight words. He’s always bright and cheery when I enter his class, ready to learn and share.

“What did you do this weekend?” I inquired, expecting to hear about a video game or playing with his friend.
“Sleep. I didn’t have to get up and my mom said I wouldn’t get up for anything,” Howie replied. “Yep. She said I slept and slept and there was nothing gettin’ me up. Uh- uh,” he added shaking his head. “Me and my bed. We like each other.”

I smiled. Sleep is good. Glad he tanked up on his sleep and was refreshed for the new day.

    There are many (& wonderful) surprises when asking a child a question. Glad you shared, Mary Helen!
