Em got to bring Lauren to school today for her Share Day. It was so very cute. She was so excited to share her best friend with all of her classmates. But I think she got a little nervous because Mommy was watching from the back of the room, too.
E: “Hi, Boys and Girls” (YES! She really did say that!)
Class: “Hiiii, Emma!”
E: “My share today is my friend. She is from Chicago. Hmmm…her favorite color is pink. And I like her because she has been my friend for a long time.”
( little pause )
“I can take questions now.”
Classmate: “Um…What is her name?“
E: “Oh, Lauren!”
Classmate: “How old is she?”
E: “5 and a half!”
And…that was it! It was great. Em gave Lauren a hug and we were on our way. So funny.
