Red show and tell day

September 28, 2012

Every Friday Mae has show and tell at school. This Friday was RED show and tell. So, Mae went all out. She wore red in addition to bringing her cool red satin cape to show everyone. She even had an elaborate story to tell about her cape (one I had never heard before). Apparently, she wears the cape at home and pretends to be Little Red Riding Hood – and yours truly plays the part of the grandmother. She avoided eye contact with me as she spun the tale to her classmates – but I did manage to catch her eye as she was wrapping up — I think she got the message — a little embellishment is fine – but let’s not get carried away.
