He Knows What To Do

My Sugarbear is going on a field trip today.

As soon as he woke up he asked, “Is it March 2nd?”


“Yayyy! I’m ready to go on my fieldtrip!”

“Brush your teeth first.”

After he gets dressed and has his lunch packed I give him some money to take with him for a souvenir. I give him the speech about staying with his class and not wandering off. I remind him that if someone grabs him, he should kick and scream and yell and run away.

He listens intently while fingering the money I gave him.

“So what do you do with this money?” I ask him.

“Put it in my pocket.”

“And what do you say if someone comes up to you and tries to take your money?”

He pauses.
