Daily Life, 96

Today in PreK music, I was introduced to a new student, who just turned four years old.

Me        We're so glad your family moved to our school!  Is Jedidiah*  your big brother, in 5th grade?

Sanika*    Yes.  All the girls love him, you know.

Me         Oh, really?

Sanika*   Yes.  It's because he's soooooo handsome.

*Jedidiah and Sanika are, of course, not the real names of this big brother and proud little sister.
