Bemused but thankful

11454297503_e27946e4ff_hAs I walked down the hallway, a young child, unknown to me, stopped me.  He looked up at me, his big brown eyes intent.
“Do you know what?” he asked, quite earnestly.
“No, what?” I asked.
“Sometimes I call my sister Sweet Cheeks,” he said.
And then before I could respond, he was dancing out the door to recess, leaving me with a bemused smile on my face and a deep thankfulness for the whimsical joy of working with children.

  1. Adorable! “Sweet Cheeks” – really sweet to think that he was thinking about his sister during the school day. Wonder if his sister is a baby? Sounds like something parents would call their infant.
