This week has been a tough one. I'm craving for things to fall more into the happy-go-lucky range.

The good things that happened today: my first real conversation with a hurt child and not his shell, a hug from a student who often retreats, a thank you email from a parent, and the conversation I had with a kindergartener.

Kindergarten student as he waits for the morning bell to ring: "Whoa! Is today Thursday?"

Me: "Why yes it is Thursday!"

Kindergarten student as he hits himself in the head with an open hand: "Oh, man! I forgot to brush my teeth this morning!"

Sometimes it is best not to ask for clarification. Here's to hoping he was just voicing two random thoughts in the same conversation.
