Maddie, Explaining the School Play

Maddie is in a “play” tomorrow at pre-school. Today we got a note from the teacher with what we need to send the kids to school in for a costume. Yes, the day before. Thanks for the head’s up. Luckily her costume calls for a “frilly, girlie dress.” Check.

So, we read the note together at dinner and I asked her what each child would be playing.

Me: And what is Lily going to be?

Maddie: Mary.

Me: As in “Mary Had a Little Lamb”?

Maddie: Yes.

Me, reading the next name on the list: And what about Angelo?

Maddie: The lamb.

I swear on all I hold sacred I could not make this up if I tried.
