I didn’t go into the office today. I worked from home so I could be the “Mystery Reader” in my little-guy’s kindergarden class. It was awesome. I had to provide some “clues” for the class before I showed up, so the teacher could test the class to see if they could guess who would be reading to them. Mine were:
- He likes riding his bike
- He has a beard
- He has a younger brother
- He works in videogames
- He’s from England
I think the little guy had it pretty much nailed by that fourth clue. It’s quite a giveaway, although it turns out I’m not the only dad in that group with a career in this area.
I read two Mr. Men books to the class, Mr. Topsy-Turvy and Mr. Dizzy – both of which were very well received. Seeing the look on my youngest’s face when I walked into the classroom will be something I’ll remember for a very long time. He looked so excited and happy to see me.
