Dear Amy's mum

(From the relief teacher at kinder)

*******************************************************************************
Dear Amy's mum,

Today it was too windy to go in the pool and I told the children we were going to play outside but it was still a bit wet from the (torrential) rain last night. I said not to worry, if they got dirty it just meant they could practise getting changed by themselves.

Amy called two of her friends over to the hill (kinder has a big pile of dirt left over from making all the sandpits that they poetically call a hill) and next time I looked they were sliding down the muddy hill on their bottoms into a big puddle.

I washed Amy's socks, shorts, underpants and t-shirt as best I could but I'm afraid there's still sand stuck to them. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Ahhh poor relief teacher. How little she knows our Amy. If there's a puddle Amy's in it. If there's mud, Amy's in it. If there's a slope, Amy's sliding down it. So a muddy slope with water at the bottom?? No chance!

I just really, really hope the two kids she dragged along have cool-about-muddy-clothes mums. Or are the kind of three year olds who don't talk much yet...

Oh good on Amy for making the most of a muddy puddle slide thing! I am sure her teacher was perplexed about what to do though.

At the kindy we taught each child needed a spare set of clothes each day AND we also had extra spare sets in their emergency backpacks (for earthquakes) that we sometimes had to pull out! All children under the age of 8 need spare clothes for school I think!!!

ROTFL! Your Amy and My dd are soul sisters. Does she like to climb by any chance?

Marina went up and down up and down up and down the wet muddy slide at kindy yesterday evening - after she had already totaled herself with her curry and her shaved ice. And here I was hoping for a nice girlie girl.

I love that they wash the clothes for you! That's *unheard* of in the U.S.! The first time E came home with his clothes in a bag, I couldn't figure out why they'd changed him because the clothes in the bag were clean!

Way to go Amy! Nothing beats a good roll in a mud puddle!

LOL! Amy sounds like the kind of little girl I was! I am sure the other Mums won't be fine about the mud (because you know how Japanese people are about that kind of thing) but I wouldn't worry about it! ;-) Amused by the letter from the teacher. That would never happen in London!
