What's Up Doc?

I have to recap our trip to parent/tot gymnastics this week.
It's just to good not to share.

First you should know that it's a pretty diverse (relatively speaking) group of people that are there. And typically you see the same faces each week.

Oh, and my kids have been watching a lot of classic cartoons lately.

But, this week there were about 5 to 6 new faces at during our group time.

As an avid people watcher I was excited-new faces to watch!

About half way into our time I realized an interesting dynamic between a couple of parents with kiddos about the same age.
Comparing who could do what on which equipment and the like.
Then came the MOST FASCINATING conversation about preschool I have ever heard.

(Just to clear my name, I wasn't eavesdropping, they were talking right next to me)

It went from class size, style comparisons, location,to the one that really got -and that they were extra proud of-which language immersion their child was doing.
A serious game of one upsmanship was happening.

Meanwhile, my little princess has climbed onto the trampoline and said 'Look Momma I'm bouncing like a bunny!'
Everyone turned to look at her, and I was nodding telling her 'I see you hopping like a bunny.'
When she says "See I'm Drugs Bunny!".
The over the top parents froze in mid sentence and it seemed as if time stood still.

"Do you mean Bugs Bunny?" trying not to giggle.

"Yep, that's me Drugs Bugs Bunny! What's Up Doc?"

We homeschool for preschool and our immersion is in classic cartoons. Thank You very much.

If there is anything that will get you over yourself and teach you all about grace it's children. And having more than one teaches you to be very generous in how and when you pass those things out.

Something tells me those parents won't be back to play with us anytime soon.

It was pretty funny!
I probably would've been mortified if it would have been my first kiddo, but now 12 years later, I just owned it and it made me laugh! :)
