Some people might be disappointed in this type of behavior. While I definitely don't condone it...I laughed till I cried reading this email. Enjoy.
Dear Jenny -
I hope you enjoy the subject line of this e-mail. There is never a dull day at preschool, and I figured you're sense of humor would enjoy this. Not sure it will make it into the baby book, but thought you should know about this to keep your eye out for any potential copy-cat attempts by John.
On the playground after lunch, M. spotted a preschooler squatting behind the bike shed, pants down, and J. standing guard. Here is the story M. was able to gather after taking with J. and his friend.
Friend: I have to go poop. I'm gonna go back here.
J: You have to go inside.
F: No, I'm gonna go out here.
J: Ok, I'm gonna let nobody see.
F: That's a good idea. (J stands in front of his friend while he poops behind the bike shed, before M spots the two)
Then, the following conversation happened...
Ms M: Do you like ____?
J: Oh yes.
Ms. M: If you want to keep playing with him, then you need to make good choices together.
J: I told him to poop inside.
Ms. M: Ok. But if he chooses to make a bad choice, then you need to tell a teacher so we can help him make a better one.
Ms. M: If it's too hard for you to make good choices together, playing with ____ won't be a choice for you at all.
Ms. M: After rest time, _____ needs to make play choices away from you. You can play together on the next preschool day.
J's friend said they were playing, "Guess who pooped outside?" Quite the game if you ask me. I'm sure corporate America can't wait to market such a gem. This certain friend was also part of another fun game a few weeks earlier, "Slap that granny's bum", which involved a certain (un)lucky and unsuspecting grandmother coming to pick up her grandson after lunch. Apparently J was with him at the time - it is unclear to what extent J was involved with devising the granny bum game.
I hope you appreciate all the amazing games J is learning while at school. We'll keep an eye on the dynamic between J and his buddy. In the meantime, you might want to keep an eye out for Jrecreating any of these antics outside of school. Let us know if you see anything unusual.
Let me know if you have any questions,
