Everything You Need to Know, You Learn in Kindergarten

“Hey Mom! D’you wanna know about the song we sing in Ms. Picco’s class?”

“well, of course I do. Tell me all about it”

*clears throat. begins singing*

“Sit down, sit down, everybody sit down…”

*smiles. sniffs. continues. with hand gestures.*

“Not on the ceiling, not on the door, not on people…”

*trails off… pauses.”

“Does it finish with ‘on the floor’ baby?”

“Um… oh, yah…’ but on the floor!'”

*laughs*

“Mom?”

“Yes, love?”

“D’you know what it says in the song?”

*begins again*

“Sit down, sit down, everybody sit down.
Not on the ceiling, not on the door, not on people’s butts,
on the floor!”

*laughs maniacally*

“It says that Mom. It says that really. It really, really does.”

*no reply. Mom can’t stop snorting*

    Well that is an important lesson: don’t sit on people’s butts ….didn’t you know?

    Aww, they use that in Kindergarten too? Our version went “everybody sit down, sit down, sit down, everybody sit down on the floor. Not on the ceiling, not on the door. Everybody sit down on the floor.”

  3. Mr. Picco really knows how to engage five-year-olds! (Maybe older-than-five-year-olds, too!)

  4. Your Andrew brought a smile to my face. I remember the one when I was not much older than him where you had others look down the neck of their shirt and spell the word ATTIC. We thought it was hilarious, the closest thing to naughty we dared say out loud.
