I sucked up to Jack's teacher a little bit at his kindergarten open house today.
I gave her all ninety-four of the unsharpened pencils we've somehow accumulated.
(I probably sounded a little psycho too when, in the throes of kindergarten anxiety, I told her exactly how many pencils I was giving her. Oh well.)
I'm sure our supply will be replenished soon. In fact, I'm sure Jack will probably come home with some of the very pencils I just gave away. But for one glorious day, I don't have to wonder where to put them so they won't end up all over my house.
