After recess today, Martin walked in and I became alarmed. He appeared to have either dried blood or mud all over his face. Not just a smattering here and there, I mean his face was covered… After he put his coat away, I called him over.
“Martin, are you alright?” I inquired.
“Uh-huh,” he replied.
“Martin, what’s all over your face buddy? Did you get hurt?” I asked.
He looked surprised by my question.
“Martin, what’s all over your face?” I prodded again.
“Oh, I had pudding for lunch!” He said a little too loudly for Quiet Time.
“Well you need to go get a wet paper towel and clean off your face,” I instructed.
“Oh, I was saving it for later,” he said attempting to lick his face with his tongue… I think he was going for a laugh and it was hard to hold one back.
“Well, clean it off for me please,” I finished.
Saving it for later? I think the poor kid was going through sugar withdrawal from Halloween.
